Neither Hero nor Traitor offers a poignant portrayal of conflict in a story about a country on the brink of war and a young man forced to choose between his dreams and his “duty.”
Buenos Aires, 1982: Matías, a 19 year old on the brink of adulthood, has just finished military service and wishes to study music in Spain. His problems boil down to convincing his girlfriend to join him later and dealing with his father’s disapproval. But his life quickly takes an unexpected turn when the Falklands War breaks out and he and his friends are called to enlist in the army.
