A teenager and his perspective about near reality in the frame of Cubanese Periodo Especial . Good performances, correct story, fair constructed atmosphere, interesting use of themes. And the feeling about something missing. It is not a film to critic very hard but the impression, after its end, it is to see a gallery of sketches. Good ones, no doubts, but only sketches. Poetic, precise in traits, giving the exact details of a profound collective drama.
