Summary
In 1492, Christopher Columbus landed on what is now the island of Cuba and claimed it for Spain, and in a little over a century, the native population was virtually wiped out. Cuban culture is therefore influenced by a melting pot of cultures, primarily those of Spain and Africa due to the importation of slaves from that continent. This film explores this tropical outpost where, thanks to the island's physical isolation and closed society, it seems time has stood still for more that 50 years now
