In this Cuban-Argentine film, Argentine 40-year-old Laura (Susu Pecoraro), visiting Cuba for the first time on business, is divorcing her husband back in Buenos Aires. She's soon involved with smooth-talking cab driver Frank (Jorge Perugorria). Garment manufacturer Francisco (Ulises Dumont), having lost his wife, children, and home, has traveled to Cuba to kill himself, but Frank's mother (Veronica Lynn) realizes that Francisco is the teenage lover who got her pregnant. In other relationships, a gay couple (Luis Alberto Garcia and Humberto Paez) argue over whether or not to remain in the closet, and two documentary filmmakers (Jorge Martinez and Laura de la Uz) have career conflicts. Shown at the 1998 Cinequest San Jose Film Festival.
