Two strangers meet on a lonely beach, not knowing that their futures depend on this encounter.

A fisherman with no name and a civil servant at her office desk oscillate between loneliness, memory, and reality on a journey towards human connection and renewal.

This powerful, minimalist drama celebrates courage, conviction, and life itself. Winner of the prestigious 2010 Casa de las Américas Prize for drama based in Havana, Cuba. (
