Summary:
In Havana, Cuba an up-and-coming singer searches for confidence, a young woman in love longs for motherhood and a veteran of the Revolution comes to terms with the death of her husband. Three women, united by blindness and a desire for independence, guide us through Cuba's current economic and social landscape while pursuing their dreams and breaking through personal and societal limitations. Jennifer Redfearn gained intimate access to her subjects and emerged with beautiful footage and poignant moments--while also supplying us with a window on current-day Cuba in this heady transitional moment.
