SYNOPSIS: Cuba, 1983. Santa is a 30-year-old peasant working on a state farm. Nearby lives Andres, a 50-year-old homosexual writer who, according to the government, suffers from “ideological problems”. Whenever there is a political event in the region, ordinary citizens are assigned the task of monitoring suspects and prevent any type of opposition to the regime. This time Santa will be the one following Andres’s routine, over the course of three days prior to the event. Gradually these two seemingly opposing figures will discover that more things bring them together than set them apart.
