Comrades in Arms

  • Portugal
Audio Tracks 

Comrades in Arms shows, in a very personal way, the experience of young men who choose to leave being the life of a civilian to become part of the navy at the Escola de Fuzileiros/Marine School of the Portuguese Navy. We follow what really happens along these boys’ journey through the course that will lead them into becoming a marine.
