Summary:
Consists mostly of interviews with Cubans about their opinions on living in Cuba during its "Special period"--the end of help from the USSR and the effects of the blockade by the United States against Cuba. Many performing artists are interviewed--a dissident theatre group in Havana, a more traditional African theatre group in Santiago, and also film star Jorge Perugorria. The central personality in the film is Abel Prieto, the president of UNEAC-the national artists' and writers union. The street interviews illustrate the passion of the people for their country despite the rationing of food and petrol, and the constant cuts in water and power supplies.
