This film is the fictional version of the 1969 abduction of the United States Ambassador Charles Burke Elbrick. Loosely based on the 1979 memoir O Que É Isso Companheiro (in English, What's This, Comrade?), written by Fernando Gabeira, a member of the student guerrilla group responsible for Elbrick's kidnapping, Four Days in September dramatizes the planning stages and the execution of the abduction while addressing the military dictatorship's ruthless repression of dissent.
