David is a university student who has been dumped by his girlfriend. He meets Diego, who is a gay artist unhappy with the Castro’s regime. Miguel, an activist to the communist cause, asks David to spy on Diego. As their relationship grows closer, Diego falls in love with David, Miguel accuses David of being himself a homosexual, and in the end, it is not clear what will happen to those two… The film criticises all kind of intolerance, be it sexual, political or ideological.
