Description

In a shabby apartment in downtown Los Angeles, Antonio Bernal waits to be evicted. It is the final defeat in a series of blows that drove him from Guatemala after a death squad murdered his wife and child, a boy of two. Not far from Antonio s apartment, Guillermo Longoria is playing chess. Utterly absorbed in the game, he stretches for the queen revealing the tattoo on his arm which bears witness to his past - as a member of the Jaguar Battalion of the guatemalan Army. Will Antonio confront his family s murderer? And how will this confrontation effect both men? The Tattooed Soldier is the riveting story of two haunted men and the fatal intersecting of their lives. It also explores the thin line between victim and aggressor, between rich and poor on the streets of LA.show more
