Shot through the eyes of Felipe—a tortured film director who tries in vain to create an authentic portrayal of love that his grandfather could so easily capture in his amateur films of decades prior—his lens follows two actors, Edel and May, who play the characters Alejandro and Rita. The two strangers with two different motives are looking for the same girl. Their search meanders through a chaotic Havana that gets them simultaneously nowhere, and entangled. Likewise, Felipe’s film meanders from scene to scene lacking a coherent thread and conclusion as he confronts his incapacity for love.
