The 90s. Cuba is drowning in hunger, cigars and rum. In this grim landscape, the life of Candelaria (75), and Víctor Hugo (76) continues at a slow pace. The days are repetitive, conversations are sparse, dinners are sad. But the monotony is broken when Candelaria finds a video camera hidden in the dirty sheets of the hotel where she works.
