A fascinating glimpse into the social and cultural complexities of Castro’s Cuba.

Havana, 2000. Fidel Castro has just unveiled a lifesize statue of John Lennon. But former musician Johnny can remember a time, thirty years before, when the Beatles were not so celebrated in Cuba. He steals the statue and attempts to re-assemble his rock band. But dredging up the past only rubs salt into today’s wounds.
