CUBA , Canada , Québec | 94 minutes | 2020

WORLD PREMIERE

Leonardo, a classical dancer, and Sara, a lawyer, are young, beautiful and in love. They’re also ambitious, but their dreams are thwarted by Cuba’s closed borders. Their ticket to a brighter future could well lie with Nasim, a tourist with a taste for the exotic. An Iranian-born Canadian, she’s struggling with her own demons. Power, money, creativity and destiny intertwine in a passionate love triangle with a hint of magic where cultures clash in a torrid dance. et in Quebec’s winter and Havana’s sultry Malecón, which Nabatian films with infinite tenderness, the film is carried by some truly charismatic actors.
