Iluminados por el fuego

ILUMINADOS POR EL FUEGO tells the story of Esteban Leguizamón, a 40-year old man who, in 1982, when he was only 18, was taken to fight as a soldier in the Falkland Islands. Drawing on the attempted suicide of one of ex-colleagues, Esteban submerges himself in his memories of the war that he shared with two young recruits: Vargas, the man who committed suicide and Juan, who died in combat. In looking back, not only the horrors of war reappear, the cold and the hunger but also stories of friendship and solidarity. Told from Esteban’s perspective, the film highlights the slow and gradual journey towards death. 20 years after the war, Esteban decides to go back to the Falkland Islands to re-live his past and try to heal old wounds.
