LA NUBE: Synopsis: Nana lives in a small village. She is a single mother surprised by the
sudden death of her father, the head of the family. With the arrival of her brother Ulises, Ana recounts her life, and decides that it is better to leave everything as before.
VELAS: Synopsis: Olga and Enrique live alone in the house they share since their wedding 60 years ago. Faced with the uncertainty of the present, their life has been reduced to the expectation and the evocation of their past.
NADIE: Synopsis: Almost blind, the Cuban poet Rafael Alcides decides to finish his novels without publishing them. After several decades he discovers that the ink in his typewriter vanished. This is a story of the Cuban revolution through love and disappointment, seen through a man who was once in the public light and today lives in an inner exile, trying to save his life’s work. This is his personal vision of the Cuban nation. (Work in Progress. Preview)
