A Cuban teenager, the primary caretaker for his beloved grandmother, develops his first crush during the summer of 1994, when the collapse of the Soviet Union and the ensuing shortage of food, supplies, and electricity compel people to make the perilous journey to the US by boat. Set in the director's rural hometown of Gibara and loosely based on his experiences, the film is not only a coming-of-age story, but also a memory of a time in the not-so-distant past that is still quite relevant today.
