Santa y Andres (Santa and Andres)

Santa y Andres (Santa and Andres)

In the 1980s, Andres lives in a shack in the Cuban hills, selling preserves for a living, but is considered a dangerous dissident. So during a nearby conference attended by foreigners, Santa, a farm worker, is sent to ensure he has no contact with them. A true believer, she’s puzzled to find she relates to him as a fellow wounded human being. But even the smallest defiance of revolutionary doctrine must be ruthlessly repressed.
