Romeo and Juliet meet one night in a bar, and fall in love. Things are shot for them, they soon begin to live together and have their first child: Adam. A life full of love and joy, which suddenly stop when Adam, two years old, is diagnosed with cancer. La guerre est declarée is a portrait of the war against cancer, from despair, anger and the little joys that derive from small victories, approached with a sense of humor and frenzy. A compendium of different reactions and human moods, exorcisms that demystify the disease, without hiding the hardness of the almost exclusive dedication that it demands. And, like any war worth its salt, that of this history will also leave ruins at the end.
