FILM SYNOPSIS

viva
VIVA stars Hector Medina as Jesus, a young hairdresser working at a Havana nightclub that showcases drag performers, who dreams of being a performer himself. 

Encouraged by his mentor, Mama (Luis Alberto Garcia), Jesus finally gets his chance to take the stage. But when his estranged father Angel (Jorge Perugorria) abruptly reenters his life, his world is quickly turned upside down.

 As father and son clash over their opposing expectations of each other, VIVA becomes a family love story as the men struggle to understand one another and reconcile.
