Three characters in present-day Havana must choose between clinging to their self-restricting beliefs, or getting rid of them to live more freely. Ballerina Mariana has promised God celibacy if she gets the role of "Giselle"; Social-worker Julia always faints after hearing a certain word; and pot-smoking percussionist Elpidio was abandoned by his mother, coincidentally named Cuba, some time ago and has not yet gotten over the loss. Written by
It's all about Cuban fate and how it will bring our three protagonist together. A poetic and surreal piece that lends itself to comedy and melodrama! Perez's directorial influence may have derived from the films of Elisio Subiela and Alexandro Jodorowsky. There are also hints of Fellini with the occasional background sound of that dreamy kind of wind scattering about in our subconscious.
