Synopsis
“The revolution, even if it destroys me, is my revenge on the stupid Cuban bourgeoisie”. With these words Sergio asserts himself in his decision to stay in the post-revolutionary Cuba of the sixties. Walking through the streets of Havana, Sergio ruminates on the changes that arise in his country. Ideas and memories merge in his reflections on a Cuba in transition marked by the uncertainty of a decade in constant turmoil.
