Immersed in the jungle of Sierra Maestra, three veterans of the Angolan War are reluctant to abandon the revolutionary spirit which brought them together as comrades over thirty years ago. From the mid-1970s to the late 1980s, Cuban troops supported the People’s Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA). The three veterans practice battle manoeuvres, smear themselves with mud, and head deeper and deeper into the dense fauna —with the viewer never knowing exactly where they are headed or why. Always on guard, they continue to train dressed in their old uniforms for an endless mission: a war game in which they still can feel respected, strong and, above all, spiritually young.
