Summary
Sergio, a bourgeois intellectual Cuban, is alone after the departure of his wife, parents and friends in the wake of the Bay of Pigs incident. Now in a brave new world, Sergio observes the constant threat of foreign invasion while chasing young women all over Havana before finally meeting Elena, a young virgin girl he seeks to mold into the image of his ex-wife, but at what cost to himself?
