Synopsis / Plot
Iluminados por el fuego narrates the memories of 40-year-old Esteban Leguizamón, who went to fight in the Falklands in 1982 at the age of only 18. An ex-companion?s suicide throws him back into the memories of a war in which he fought with another two young recruits: Vargas, the one who committed suicide, and Juan, killed in combat. There he finds not only the horrors of the war and suffering from the cold, but also tales of friendship and comradeship. Esteban?s thoughts convey the slow and gradual descent of their fragile lives into the claws of death itself. 20 years after the war, Esteban decides to return to the Islands to face his past and close old wounds.
