This is one of the last examples of the Angolan school of historical-political documentaries. It is through photographs, interviews and reconstructions, Memória de um Dia envokes the massacre by the Portuguese against the populations of Icolo and Bemgo, who were taking part in a peaceful demonstration. The day the title refers to is the day of the tremendous repression against those who were trying to obtain information on the fate of Augustino Neto, imprisoned by the Portuguese political police.
