Episode 2

Florida was an unremarkable suburb of the Vicente Lopez district of Buenos Aires in the Summer of 1956, when a group of neighbours assembled in the back apartment of a house to play cards and listen to a boxing match on the radio. In the front apartment the owner of the house listened to the same fight with an acquaintance, whilst his wife got ready for bed.

Meanwhile across the city General Valle and General Tanco were planning an uprising against the government, which set in train a macabre chain of events for the unsuspecting men in Florida.
