Do you have what it takes to follow your duty while following your heart?
22 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Make a point of seeing this short film! I saw it at Sundance 07....Its a moving story of one man's struggle with his conscious as he strives to do his duty - when the reality of what his duty is begins to haunt him. We all want to consider ourselves heroes and think that what we do is for the higher good....but at what cost? Go see this film...and decide for yourself. This isn't a pro military or anti war film though each person will try to slant it however they feel. This is a film about doing what you believe in to only to find out you are no longer sure what you believe. I think Santiago Vasquez did an excellent job as Lobos. The BEST scene is of him in the bathroom trying to steel himself to face his fears. He says more in drying his face with a papertowel then most people say in 10 minutes of dialogue.
