Synopsis:
The complicated love triangle between three friends on the eve of the Cuban missile crisis becomes a metaphor for the fraught politics of the Cold War in this playful dramedy. As Cuba solidifies its alliance with the Soviet Union, lively farm girl Lisanka helps her small town make the transition in whatever way she can. Yet she fiercely maintains her independence from revolution loyalist Sergio, staunch anti-communist Aurelio, and Soviet soldier Volodia, all of whom vie for her affections.
