SYNOPSIS

Ciego de Avila, 2013. In a sort of road movie documentary film crew goes into the realities of the northern lands of a province of Cuba. On Carro de Puertas, a single wagon train, they made this trip through the northern line. Although the crossing is Punta Alegre Moron they make a decisive stop halfway, in Falla, a town frozen in time at some point in the early 1990s, and even wasted by the ravages of the economic crisis. There, between the material and spiritual ruins, the film crew documented the poverty and neglect of several generations of Cubans. This thesis is the same in most villages on the island.
