The Short Life of Jose Antonio Gutierrez.
The film tells of an unbelievable story of a one-time street kid from Guatemala, who headed north along the Pan-American Highway — for a better future — ultimately to die an American hero far from home. José Antonio Gutierrez was one of the 300,000 soldiers sent by US Army to war in Iraq. A few hours after the war began, his picture was broadcast all over the world: he was the first American soldier to be killed in the war. He was there as a so-called 'green-card soldier' — one of approximately 32,000, fighting in the ranks of the US Army for a foreign country.
