Synopsis

Based on the movel of the same name by Edmundo Desnoes. The diary of a middle class intellectual caught in the midst of the rapidly changing social reality of revolutionary Cuba. Sergio is a landlord and self-styled writer who decides to remain behind when his wife, family and friends, whom he ridicules, leave for Miami. But Sergio is unable to commit himself to the revolution either, and so remains only a sceptical observer. His perceptions of Cuban society, both before and after the revoluton, are interwoven with documentary footage of historical events, such as the Bay of Pigs invasion and the Cuban missile crisis of 1962.
