Synopsis: 

Cuban writer-director Carlos Lechuga’s feature debut is a sharp examination of things we do for money when our options suddenly dwindle. It is also a satirical survey of a country mired in bureaucracy, one whose sense of glory derives from an era that had passed before the film’s central characters were even born.
