Africa, People´s Republic of Angola, August 1983. Thousands of UNITA troops, trained and armed by the racist South African army, launch a violent offensive against FAPLA forces, loyal to the Angolan government, and a group of Cuban advisors, FAR combatants, stationed in KANGAMBA, a small town in the south of the country. An unequal battle is waged for more than a week, which also impacts the innocent civilian population. FAPLA and FAR troops resist and prevail, but at a high cost. At times, victory may leave a bitter taste.
