In 1990, Czech documentary filmmaker Jana Bokova travels to Havana to gather footage of the lives of everyday Cubans. Contrasting the picturesque beauty of Havana's colonial facades with scenes of economic hardship, Bokova offers a rare glimpse into life in the isolated island nation. Meanwhile, interviews with aging revolutionaries, the exiled poet Reinaldo Arenas and Cuban expatriates in Miami provide a more politically pointed critique of Fidel Castro's regime.
