El Techo (On the Roof)

El Techo (On the Roof)

Three young friends daydream on the roofs of the apartment blocks of Havana. Anita wonders who’s the father of her unborn child. Yasmani watches his pigeons fly free and tries to coax his father into leaving their apartment. Vito, convinced he’s really Italian, tries to contact his imagined family in Sicily. In a world of their own, they try to find a way to begin their lives in the real world.
