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.
Luis Alberto Garcia, Isabel Santos, Coralia Veloz, Rolando Brito, Bebe Pérez, Claudia Rojas.
Originally released as a motion picture in 1998. Special features original theatrical trailer. "A Cuban blend of visual flair, absurdist humor and mystical realism, set to the pulsating music of Bola de Nieve and Benny Mordé."--Container.
