KM 674: Turn to Obregón

"KM 674: TURN TO OBREGÓN" is a documentary classic black key to the service of a political investigation police.
The cold-blooded murder five cooperative on January 23 of 1974, the result of a police mistake, is the starting point to unravel the political climate in which it was begun to develop the military dictatorship that overshadow the Argentina from 1976.
The slaughter perpetrated by the police in the province of Córdoba, helps to understand the complex plot that inaugurated in February of the same year one of the first hits of the decade against a democratic and popular government in the country: the header by Ricardo Obregón Cano and Atilio López.
The route revives the story of what happened that January '74 when the death dressed in blue stops a 674 kilometer route from Córdoba. Twenty men of the Radio Command provincial police come together at that place to kill five Federal Police. Their mission: to provoke a confrontation against them to produce the power vacuum that justifies government intervention Atilio López and Obregón Cano.
Two similar cars circulating on the same area, five passengers in each. A tragic accident that would result : the red Ford Falcon of the cooperative is "confused" with burgundy color Falcon federal police. In a calculated and bloody ambush, officers Command crouch in the trenches on both sides of the road and the car strafe fiercely red.
The murder is immersed in an opaque web of despotism, impunity and injustice. The provincial police justified the shooting by labeling the five victims as dangerous "extremists". Their families walk the hospitals looking for them but there is no trace of their bodies.
The plot is again at the KM 674, instead of the slaughter. The walking in slow and soporific way, asphalt vapor by high summer temperatures, the trip crossed the two cars Falcon, frying sounds of police radio call. A speeding motor hail of bullets. The official versions and political readings of the murder. Violation of Federal, the secret in the headlines. The court ruling that described the killing as “police excess of duty”. The pains silenced. The noisy silence of impunity...
A story and two parallel stories that will converge in the tragedy of KM 674. Lattice testimonies, suspense and recreations that exposes the political agreement that was brewing the "Navarrazo"; coup would occur one month after slaughter under the offensive it launched the then president Juan Domingo Perón against the rulers linked to the Revolutionary Tendency of Peronism.
"KM 674: TURN TO OBREGÓN" and recovers an episode in Argentina's history that still remains unpunished.
