In Havana, on a roof, three young friends gather every day to tell stories and dreams, treating life as if time passes without notice. In the midst of their boredom, without money and dreaming of prosperity, they decide to set up their own business, a pizza restaurant. Their story embodies hope and the pursuit of aspirations in unclear circumstances. This microcosm speaks volumes about the vibrant culture and climate of Cuba today, showcasing the talents of a new woman director who is someone to watch.

    Don Ruperto is an old cynical man who does not care about other people's feelings. Ruthlessly he cares just about his own interests. When he gets himself into trouble nevertheless he is helped by those he hurt.
