Description
 
The morality of a secret war comes under scrutiny in this realistic drama set in Nicaragua. Eddie Guerrero (Robert Beltran) is a Chicano Green Beret and a Vietnam veteran who has always been a model soldier. But now he s in the jungles of Latin America fighting a war that s not his and against an enemy that includes innocent civilians amongst its victims. Officially, he and his American comrades aren t even there --- they re ordered into combat without their dog tags. And slowly Eddie begins to question what he s doing and why. His deep soul searching leads him to some very difficult decisions which deeply affwect his actions and could influence the fate of a nation. Written and Directed by multiple Academy Award winning cinematographer, Haskell Wexler, LATINO is a hard hitting, fast paced story of politics, power and the personal side of war that will leave you with plenty to think about.
