Testimonies of the parents, relatives and survivors of the Kiss nightclub tragedy in Santa Maria, Brazil, on January 27th, 2013, which killed 242 young adults and left more than 600 survivors. The documentary covers the three years since the tragedy, and compares it to similar cases, such as the one at the nightclub The Station in West Warwick in 2003 and the Cromañón nightclub in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 2004. Tragedies that killed hundreds of people over a period of ten years and that could have been avoided. The documentary reinforces the need to raise awareness "so it never happens again" and so these tragedies are never forgotten.
