Cuba, 2022. Two men who can't stand each other, father and son, travel in an old Russian car, from the west to the east of the island. The father is an ex-convict, who is going blind and has had to swallow his macho pride to ask his youngest son, a gay artist, to be his eyes to drive the car. They travel with the objective of finding the eldest son, who's 'gone missing', most likely because he's got himself into a life or death predicament. For the youngest son, who's been rejected by his father on account of being gay, and even after he'd given up seeking validation from the old man, his father's unusual request still represents an opportunity to get closer to his father... And to his brother.. And to earn his trust and both their respect, or at least that's what he thinks before they hit the road in search of his criminal older brother... For the old man, prejudice is the hardest habit to break. For him it is as clear as using the son he loves the least; to find the son that makes him proud. So, whitholding key facts from the gay son is a no brainer for the old man. Who fails to tell his young son about his brother's actual situation, playing down the fact he's actually hiding out in fear of his own life.... No to mention the gun he carries for "protection" Without knowing it, the young man is taken into a world of violence and darkness. By the end of the trip the young artist, like a samurai, will show more courage than his father or his brother relatives and will have to take the gun to save his family.View Project

Hers is a story that bears witness to the complicated history of a country and the unchanging spirit of a dedicated soul who failed in the literal sense, but succeeded metaphorically in her goal of outliving Castro. A 'riches to rags' story of an interloper who becomes the denizen.View Project
