« This film includes three chapters. The initial L.B.J. (Lyndon B. Johnson) articulate the film, namel : Chapter L Luther, B for Bob, and J for John or Jack… The film features three assassinations of American political personalities that shook world public opinion. The chapter on Martin Luther King is treated with respect and admiration. Y exposes the different theories that exist about the fight against racial discrimination within the black movement in the USA. The film speaks for itsel : Orff, Miriam Makeba, Nina Simone and Pablo Milanes are the narrative substance. The film is a synthesis of historical, didactic and satirical poetry whose theme is the role of violence in the USA, from the conquest of the West to our days. »
