    • Synopsis
    • Documentary that investigates in the tragedy that occurred in the Door 12 of River Plate stadium, June 23, 1968, during a soccer match developed among the owner of house and its eternal rival one, Boca Juniors.
      In a Monumental stadium filled, the visiting supporters occupied the tribunal that gives to the Av. Figueroa Alcorta.
      A bored encounter, that finish zero to zero, in a very cold late, perhaps announced the tragedy that approached.
      It concluded the party the supporters of Boca Juniors began to be withdrawn in the middle strong canticles, what collaborate to the development of the events. So much song impeded to listen the shouts of the ones that already were trapped, immobilized, seeking an air that never would arrive them, crushed by the pressure of the ones that they continued wanting to descend.
      The L section (used to be door 12) is a tunnel of 80 steps, not too wide, and was that the place transformed into a death trap for hundreds of supporters, that fell, they were trampled, literally crushed by the flood of people.
      They were hundreds the injured, and were 71 the lives that were lost.
      Which were the true reasons that unchained the facts? Almost forty years later, the doubts persist…..And the only appreciable change is that the Door 12 no longer exists, by the simple resource to rename it as Door L.
