    • Synopsis
    • One day I came back to Cuba after some time, bringing questions latent inside me. Where is my Island going to? What has really changed? At home, in the streets, with my friends, I go deep into questioning myself about a country´s hope, a country that has stopped being what it was. I also expect to find a space for me in this place. But changes in the Island are no more than appearances, a pretext to wait. Everything moves imperceptibly.
      I start looking into myself, wondering how I came here, especially in a moment when we stop asking questions to ourselves. I need to start thinking again about the patriotism I was taught, about what is left of it. The dialogue becomes a generational issue, between my grandparents, my parents, me and the people from my generation. There is an understanding in the final farewell, a need for reconciliation with the beloved homeland. The one that is found beyond any physical territory, or political situation.
