In the 1990s, Cuba's image is defined by poverty, cigars, and rum. Seventy-five-year-old Candelaria and her husband, Victor Hugo, are still together only out of convenience. When they find a video camera, however, their lives are changed forever and their love for one another is renewed — until the camera disappears. Victor Hugo must venture into the depths of Havana to regain his aphrodisiac.
