Alejandro Amenábar's seventh feature film takes us back to the days of the Spanish Civil War outbreak and Miguel de Unamuno's fight in Salamanca against everyone to stand for what he believed was right. Not just another Spanish Civil War film, While at War goes beyond the depiction of one of its chapters, but shows the dangers of political passivity and the dignity of the famous philosopher and writer who fought angainst everyone, right and left, to stand for what he believed in.
