This film follows Sergio through his life after the departure of his wife, parents and friends in the wake of the Bay of Pigs incident. He observes the constant threat of invasion while chasing young women in Havana before finally meeting a young girl he seeks to mold into the image of his ex-wife.

“To view and study Alea’s films is to see revolutionary Cuba through the eyes of the island nation’s most important and consistently critical filmmaker,” – Paul A Schroeder

“Tomás Gutiérrez Alea brought an unprecedented vitality and exuberance to Cuban cinema, rich with ideas and interpretations, to create an often contradictory, complex connective tissue of life in Cuba. Portraying everyday life and ordinary people, he was able to endow them with all the eccentricities of the world, yet they never appear cheesy or cliché. Alea’s films provide curious insights into conformity and freedom, maturity and stagnancy, the political and personal, and sanity and drama as inextricable components of a thick and vivifying whole, that being life.” – Julia Levin, Senses of Cinema
