This documentary explores the lack of freedom of the press that often affects media and information professionals when they are faced with the reality of living in countries such as China, Portugal, Indonesia, Algeria, Colombia or Northern Ireland. There is also a special section of the film dedicated to the Basque Country that asks journalists their opinions as well as collecting the testimonies of some reporters that have suffered fear and violence as a result of this reality.
