Antonio Murillo is a former air force pilot who saw action during the Portugal's colonial wars in Africa. He was dismissed for refusing to sink a ship loaded not only with rebels, but women and children. Now, he drives a taxi in Portugal and witnesses the despotism of Salazar's military junta, which violently suppresses free expression a la Franco. He has a girlfriend who is a member of the underground resistance against the dictatorship. Antonio isn't interestedin politics; he dreams of saving enough money to buy his own plane and fly again. One day, however, he transports, unknowingly, a resistance member. This brings him to the attention of the secret police. He is arrested and sent to prison. That changes his attitude about politics forever.
