    • Synopsis
    • Is 1983 in a rural mountain region of Oriente, in eastern Cuba. Andrés — a noncompliant gay writer in his fifties— has been blacklisted by the government for having “ideological problems”. A big event is coming up and, as it is routine in these cases, someone reliable must be appointed to watch over him and prevent him from making any public political statements. Santa —a local country girl in her thirties — is assigned to the task. For three consecutive days, Santa will sit in front of Andrés’ hut and watch over him. Santa and Andrés are as close as it gets of being true opposites and are not meant to like each other. What they cannot imagine, however, is that they have more things in common than they expected.
