He is a military man, sent to a distant country; the backdrop against which a technological, so-called ‘clean’ war is fought. To his great surprise, several years later, the man starts losing weight and feeling tired. He consults a doctor who orders tests to be done: the results are irreversible. And yet the hierarchy affirms to him that there is no relation between his illness and the war that was fought out there…
