A narration of the memories of a 40-year-old man, Esteban Leguizamon, who was sent to fight on Malvinas Islands in 1982 at the age of 18. A friend's attempted suicide triggers off the memories of the war times he shared with two young privates: Vargas, the suicide, and Juan, who was killed on the battlefield. Thus, the horrors of war itself, together with the ailments of hunger and cold weather are interwoven with the stories of friendship and fellowship. From Esteban's point of view, the movie shows the slow and gradual immersion of their fragile lives into the heart of death itself. Twenty years after the war, Esteban decides to return to the islands to come to terms with his past and heal old wounds.
