Synopsis 
East Timor’s historic first feature film, A Guerra da Beatriz, is the haunting, passionate story of one woman’s conviction to remain true to the man she loves and the country for which she fought. It is a bold reworking of the 16th century French ‘Martin Guerre’ story. In this adaptation the original story is transposed to Portuguese Timor during the Indonesian occupation of the small nation. Sixteen years after Beatriz’s husband disappears during a brutal massacre by occupying Indonesian forces she is troubled by his mysterious return: is he the young man she’d lost or is he an impostor?
