A poetic and slyly subversive musical short film shot in Cuba - where it's dangerous to speak openly against la Revolución.

On the island of Cuba, dissent is 'counter-Revolutionary'. It can lead to work restrictions, beatings, detentions and prison.

Most Cubans learn to show an outward facade of happiness and even acceptance of the State's control over their lives...it's safer.  In the same way, the facade of a happy melody dances through this film, while a singer reveals what he truly sees on the colorful, crumbling island.

Metal bars are a recurring motif, at homes and the derelict Modelo Prison on the isolated Isle of Youth. Cubans sometimes call their country an 'open prison'. Some would say that Cuba has been a prison of one type or another, for generations.
