This series of stories are set in Havana. They're independent of each other, but with a common link. Through every short story, the characteristics of a society that is drowned in daily life are described, in which ignorance, poverty and the circumstances give birth to a morally conflicted lifestyle. The characters' vicissitudes develop in this context, offering a portrait of the darkest side of human condition, such as greed, deception and perversion. It also shows the protagonists' vunerability facing with the most primary feelings of love, loneliness or nostalgia. It's a book of short stories which shares with us the loyalty of the Cuban people to their roots and origins.
