Short synopsis : David Zonana follows the award-winning Workforce with HEROIC, a chilling and incisive social drama feature that reveals the systemic violence rife in contemporary Mexico.

Long synopsis : Luis, an eighteen-year-old boy with indigenous roots, enrolls in the Heroic Military College to ensure a better future. He and fellow first years Mario and Mouse are quickly immersed in a rigid and institutionally violent system where they are subjected to physical and moral abuses from older cadets, designed to mold them into perfect soldiers, ready to kill. When Mario disappears after a brutal assault at the hands of an officer, Luis’ damaged psychological state worsens dangerously.
