Mar del Plata  
Oct. 19, 2017
Author:  Claudio Fava
Category:  Fiction: General/Other
Description:  While Argentina was preparing to transform the football World Cup of 1978 into a showcase for the regime, a confrontation arose between the military junta and the La Plata Rugby team.

One by one the players disappeared: but for every player killed, a boy from the youth team was promoted to a La Plata member.

The boys of the La Plata Rugby club carried on playing, winning and chose speaking out instead of fleeing to France, a possibility that opened up after the killings started.
One by one they died.
Only one of the regular team members was still alive: Raul. The last game of the championship saw a team of young kids on the pitch. They played, and won. It was the beginning of the end for the military junta, watching from the stand of honour in their sleek uniforms.

A true story, told with the passion, love and respect that great historical events deserve.
