    • Synopsis
    • According to a newspaper article, more than 25.000 Cubans maintaine they are the heirs to an unclaimed multi-million dollar fortune held in the coffers of a British bank.
      In a small town in Cuba, the news explodes like a firecracker: all those with the family name of Castiñeiras will receive a juicy inheritance which some nuns deposited in a bank in England in the 18th century.
      All the people with that family name begin proceedings to get their part, but as one can imagine, many obstacles arise along the way. Bernardito (Jorge Perugorría) is the leader of this crazy treasure hunt...
      Following GUANTANAMERA and LISTA DE ESPERA, Juan Carlos Tabío returns to comedy, looking at Cuban society with his corrosive wit.
