Synopsis

Tomas is living in a vicious circle of life and death. He has all the success and awards a man could want. Living a high-rise New York City life style, many people would love to achieve. But he cannot have it all. Some desires, money cannot buy. No matter how much he tries, Tomas cannot have his long lost love. He enters a world of night and day, dark and light, dreams and reality; that has become the line between love and suicide. Alberto lives a simple life. He never focuses on material possessions. Alberto is not living to acquire the symbols of past identities. He peacefully swims with life, knowing no one's life will ever outlast eternal time. Dreams and reality are the same for Alberto. During Tomas' last suicide attempt, he breaks into a world of history preserved in the present. A world that time has stopped and human souls have risen beyond the material surface. This world only exists in Cuba. The birthplace of many broken hearts, false dreams and lost lives. Yet, a world that defies all manly possessions, for the privilege of family, friends and the Holy Spirit. Many people appear in Cuba for many reasons; some come for no reason at all. Nina, a gypsy-type flower child is looking for her reasons, while Tomas is running away from his. In the frantic moment before he attempts to kill himself, Tomas recalls the intimate moments in Cuba brought forth from his friendship with Nina and Alberto. Especially, the ultimate test of authenticity put upon him by Alberto.
