Storyline

A desperate group of people wait at a rundown Cuban transit station for the next bus to arrive. The problem is, it never shows up. While a number of busses pass by the station, and others that are either full or at the end of the line stop by, it soon becomes obvious that the bus everyone was waiting for has left them high and dry. While one of the would-be passengers, Emilio, uses his downtime to win the affections of the beautiful Jacqueline, most of the rest decide that if they're stuck without anywhere to go, they might as well make the station a better place to wait, and they begin forming a plan to turn the decrepit bus terminal into a showplace that people would look forward to visiting.

Just a wonderful movie
2 November 2003 | by DonConoreSee all my reviews

I woke up this morning with a hangover and decided to watch this film that I had recorded many months ago. What a good decision that turned out to be! It is simply a wonderful movie. It is funny, romantic and inspiring. The less you know about the story the better. I want to read the book now.
