Description

Monique is a Parisian in her mid-30s. On her way to Havana to meet her Cuban father for the first time, she meets Mario in a Paris airport — also Cuba-bound. Grounded by weather conditions, the two share their fears, doubts, and hopes about the complexities of Cuba and Cuban identity. At the same time, their growing attraction signals another type of journey. But the movie is not exactly a love story. It is about Monique’s journey to find her father. Through Monique and Mario’s short and passionate relationship, we discover Cuba.
