Synopsis

On November 3rd, 1995, the emblematic industry of my hometown, Rio Tercero Military Munitions Factory exploded. Thousands of shells were fired against the city that had produced them. I was 12 years old, and while I was trying to escape from the explosions, I recorded the devastation of my hometown with a video camera. Twenty years later I found those tapes. The threat of the industrial and military sector is still persistent at the present time.
