Synopsis
Set in the 1969 war between El Salvador and Honduras –better known as “The Soccer War”– an Honduran foot soldier finds a lonely survivor in a raided border town during a recon mission. Moved by mercy, the soldier takes him in and looks after him. Soon enough, the survivor’s presence draws empathy from the Honduran soldier and even from the enemy, who forget about war for an instant as soon as they see him.

Run time: 28m
