Para la guerra explores a former Cuban soldier's memories and loneliness through the observation of his his (extra)ordinary gestures. A war film without a single shot being fired, but with one wound: a special forces veteran searching for survivors among his former commando comrades, 30 years after their last mission in Angola. A singular portrait of a warrior, his body, his memories and his solitude.
