Todos Se van =: Everybody Leaves

Loading...
The movie is based on the autobiographical novel with the same title by Cuban writer Wendy Guerra. Nieve, an eight year old Cuban girl, is involved in the struggle of her parents to get her custody. Eva is her mother, an artist who believes in the revolution without censorship or authoritarianism. She remarried Dan, a Swede who works in the construction of a nuclear plant. Manuel is her father, a playwright who sacrifices himself to writing pamphleteer plays in a remote area of the country. This story is a celebration of freedom and a confrontation of authority that takes place in the 1980s, in the midst of one of the worst economic crisis in Cuba.
