59 years after the establishment of a socialist government in Cuba and a year after the death of Fidel Castro, the people of the island reveal their ideas and feelings about re-sistance and revolution through their everyday lives and experiences. We see the points of view of different generations, filmed during their simplest and most intimate moments. Their visions and ideas become a polyphonic portrait, filled with hope and love for their cultural, musical, and artistic heritage. The stirring voices of the Cuban people, from Ha-vana to Santa Clara to the mountains of the Sierra, weave together to reveal a country fighting courageously and powerfully for the freedom and independence of a culture that is their magnificent birthright and which is unique in the Caribbean.
