What comes to mind at the mention of Cuba? Especially someone who has never been to this island nation in the Caribbean. Most likely, this is a cabriolet with happy blond young men in colored shirts and cocktails in their hands, surrounded by dancing mulattos, in whose eyes the boundless ocean is reflected. Of all the above, in reality there is only a boundless ocean that cuts off the island from the rest of the world. Perhaps there is no other country on earth where the difference between its image and reality is as great as in Cuba. For more than 50 years, the state has been living under the slogan of the victorious revolution "Motherland or Death". For 50 years, this slogan has been a pressing dilemma for several generations of Cubans. The film tells about the generation that was born before the revolution and today is approaching the line of its own life. When it becomes more and more clear that for them between "motherland" and "death" it will be possible to put a sign of identity.
