In the wake of her brother’s suicide, a young Mexican woman, Maribel, books a one-way ticket to the place she’d always dreamt of going – Cuba.  Wandering the streets of Havana, Maribel attempts to escape her grief, but the city’s rhythms and strangers just serve to trigger tortured ruminations and memories of him.  It is only when she bonds with Eusebio – a petty thief and skilled woodcraftsman – that Maribel begins to face her demons. As the two leave Havana to traverse Cuba, Maribel recognizes a growing attraction between them, and must decide whether to open herself up to love and loss once again.
