Synopsis

Half a century ago, an island in the Caribbean got disconnected and missed out on globalization. What supposed to be a revolution of change and progression resulted in drastic boundary. An outside world, dissonant to revolutionary prospects became vaporous, banned from the stage and invisible. An innocent way of self-deception patterned an entire generation. Trapped between the walls of the ocean, the older Cubans’ worldview and ideals mutated inch by inch. Recently a pragmatic gamble of using capitalism to save socialism paid off, but it nevertheless produced a disorientated generation. Now, three old men, Luis, Carmelo, and Ernesto, let their imaginations wander. All around them busses full of tourists, ambassadors of a never-never land, come and go, triggering in the old men a deep longing for vanished ideals; love, time and the places they have never seen.
