Synopsis

In this sensitive coming-of-age drama set in Cuba’s post-Soviet “special period,” restless teen Carlos plunges headlong into a carefree summer, kicking around with friends as he experiences his sexual awakening. With his country’s uncertain future prompting neighbors and loved ones to flee the island, Carlos finds himself increasingly isolated and emotionally adrift. A lyrical study of adolescence brought into focus through an expressive, historical lens.
