Nero's American Dream

There is nothing Nero wants more than to leave his life in Mexico and become a US citizen, and the fastest way to attain that is to sign up as a so-called Green Card Soldier in the US Army. Determined to succeed, Nero soon finds himself in the middle of a war zone in the Middle East, fighting for his citizenship – and his life – with a machine gun in his hand. SOY NERO is written and directed by Rafi Pitts, whose experiences of growing up in Iran during the war with Iraq, and escaping to the UK at the age of 14, infuses the movie with a unique sense of psychological realism.
