At a time when war, chaos and death reign over Venezuela, a soldier and a brave young woman manage to make a space for love, despite their apparently conflicting ideals. During the 1820 ceasefire, Braulio, a pro-Independence soldier enlists and arrives in Caracas, where he meets Lucía, a beautiful young woman with whom he falls madly in love. When the war starts up again, everything changes for Braulio; his love for Lucía makes him rethink what he should be fighting for. Seen as a traitor, his actions are his only way to show his homeland, and the woman he loves, his integrity and courage. MEMORIAS DE UN SOLDADO won awards for Best Cinematography, Best Editing, and Best Sound at the Venezuelan Film Festival in 2012 and was later chosen as part of the Official Selection at the Shanghai International Film Festival.
