In the aftermath of the Bay of Pigs Invasion, Sergio, an affluent writer, chooses to stay behind in Cuba while his wife and family escape to neighbouring Miami. He passes his days wandering Havana in idle reflection, his amorous entanglements and political ambivalence gradually giving way to a mounting sense of alienation. By adapting the innovative novel by Edmundo Desnoes, Thomas Gutiérrez Alea provides an indictment of its protagonist's disengagement and an extraordinary glimpse of life in postrevolutionary Cuba.

"Layers of fiction and documentary intertwine into one indissoluble fabric that testifies to the processes that happened in Cuba, but also to the reconsideration of local revolutions, underdevelopment and Westernization in other Latin American countries in the '60s. How does one act while immersed in political havoc?" (Mantė Valiūnaitė)
