Synopsis:

Reinaldo, a teenager, has recently escaped from a correctional facility. His lack of scruples and sneaky ways are his only defence on the mean streets of 1990s. As he romps his way around downtown Havana, longing, disillusionment, rum and a good sense of humour are his only company. Until one day, he meets Magda. The two find they have a lot in common and a tragic story of impossible love ensues.
