What Happened To Andres Lapeteus

After a long night with his old fellow fighters, Andres Lapeteus regains consciousness in the hospital. How has confusion, bewilderment and alienation developed between those men who once fought together side by side? Is this the inevitable result of the Stalinist regime, the influence of his parvenue wife, or the effect of his personal cowardliness and conformism? How did it really happen what happened to Andres Lapeteus?
