Billy takes us to Spain at the end of the 1960s to portray one of the armed arms of Franco’s regime: “Billy, the Kid”. Antonio González Pacheco, police inspector of the Brigada Político Social, died without being tried despite the demands of some of his victims. This film aims to offer a journey into the past through twenty testimonies of victims and survivors, most of whom were university activists at the time: Chano Galante, Roser Rius, Lidia Falcón, Josefa Rodríguez “Asturias” and Francisco Rodríguez Veloso are some of them.
