SYNOPSIS: Set between reality and fiction, the scenario opens with a huge television screen that warns everyone, spectators and soldiers, about the current war between the United States of America and the fictional country of Cubuchilia in Latin America. The story seems to be a theatrical show but the actors/soldiers seriously die. The life of the two factions is hard because the lack of water makes the continuation of the battle difficult. The war will end tragically like any devastating battle, a deadly game with a revealing ending.
