“Only the dead have seen the end of war” is a quote by the philosopher Plato. War is an endless phenomenon and a crucial, yet dreadful part of human nature. As soon as one war ends, it seems another begins somewhere else on earth. In this affecting short, a wounded soldier tries desperately to escape the battlefield as one such war rages all around him.
