Havana in the 1950s: Larita loves Elvis Presley, Ernest Hemingway and her rebellious friend Victor. But Victor is more concerned with the turbulent political situation in Cuba than Larita's likes and dreams. Hoping to study in the United States, she quickly discovers that her origins and poverty work against her. In spite of her obstacles, she is inspired by her own rich fantasy world, and Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea becomes her own story of striving for a better future.
