The film tells of the events that took place in 1976. Four terrorists, two of whom are part of the FPEP group in Palestine, and the other two of the German Revolutionary Cells, captured an Air France flight 139, starting from Tel Aviv (Israel) to Paris (France) via Athens (Greece). At the request of the terrorists the plane made the landing at the Entebbe airport in Uganda. Terrorists decide to keep passengers and crew in the old building of the airport. Separated the Jews and Israelis from the others, they promise to kill them if the Israeli authorities do not meet their demands.
