Buenos Aires, 1982. Matías has recently finished his military service and dreams of going to Spain to study music far from a dictatorship. But everything changes completely with the start of the Falklands War and Matías and his friends are drafted. A Republican grandfather, friends turned strangers who point guns at each other, a shot in the foot as an act of friendship… his environment demands that he ‘mature.’ Will desertion be his first adult act? Treason, loyalty, fear, and bravery: the story of a deserter. 75 minutes. Spanish with English subtitles.
