Havana 1914 – the turmoil surrounding WWI engulfs the daughter of a recently-deceased, wealthy slave trader. She falls in love with her cousin, an idealistic journalist, but is tied to her unfaithful husband and obsolete bourgeois values. Only in her dreams does she dare to entertain the idea of fleeing.


Leading actress Eslinda Núñez (Lucia, 1968) won the Audience Acting Award at the 10th International Ibero-American Festival in Huelva, Spain in 1983.
