The state of the arts in Cuba's capital city is examined in this documentary by American filmmakers Laurie Ann Schag and Casey Stoll. Cuban artists, filmmakers and musicians, including sculptor Pedro "Pulido" Gonzalez, performance artist Tania Bruguera, singer/songwriter Carlos Varela, and jazz musicians Ele Valdes and Carlos Alfonso, discuss their work and reveal their personal feelings toward Fidel Castro, the U.S. embargo against Cuba, and their country's political climate. Also, Cuban expatriate filmmaker Elio Ruiz looks at the large community of Cuban exiles throughout the world.
