Based on the letters of famous Portuguese writer António Lobo Antunes to his wife, CARTAS DA GUERRA tells the story of a young doctor being drafted into the army in 1971, and transferred into one of the worst zones of the colonial war: the east of Angola.

Away from everything he holds dear, Antunes writes letters to his wife while he is immersed in an increasingly violent setting. While he moves between several military posts he falls in love for Africa and matures politically. At his side, an entire generation struggles and longs for the return home. In the uncertainty of war events, only the letters can make him survive.
