Heroes de Otra Patria tells the story of two Puerto Rican
soldiers who take part in the Vietnam War
for very different reasons.
One of them, Carlos, who lost his father in the Korean War, is
survived by his mother and sister and
answers the call of compulsory military service. Raul, meanwhile,
continues his sense of military
loyalty instilled in him by his predecessors.
Their experiences are interspersed with the drama that occurs
back at home in their absence.
