Soundtrack of a revolution

On the 24th of April 1974 a pirate Portuguese radio station played the forbidden song Grândola, Vila Morena. This was the sign for revolutionaries to start the Carnation Revolution. To date, the song stands symbol for the hope of a better life. This trailer is the start of our search for battle songs in Southern Europe and their meaning for common people, dreaming of a better life.
