Film drama set in the post-revolution Cuba of the 1960s.
Content to stay behind after his wife and family leave for the US following the Bay of Pigs invasion, Sergio (Sergio Correri) resumes his life, sceptical of the claims made by the government for Cuba's future.
Fascinated by women, he soon hooks up with Elena (Daisy Granados), whose youth transfixes him for a period, until he decides to move on to his next conquest.
After being dragged through the courts by Elena's family, who accuse him of rape, Sergio finally wins his freedom.
Now in a more reflective mood after his ordeal, he considers what implications the emerging Cuban missile crisis will have for both himself and the island's future.
