A film by Armando Capó

Carlos, 14 years old, lives in Gibara, a fishing village in the north of Cuba.
He hangs out with his two friends, Mandy and Elena, whom he is secretly in love with. The vacations begin. Carlos wanders with his friends in the places they like.
One evening, he hears on television that the government will no longer prevent people from leaving for the United States. The streets of the village are now in turmoil.
This announcement is the first indication of events that will mark his adult life.
