Café Amargo / Bitter Coffee

In the fifties, Lola, Gelacia, Pepa and Cira Garlobo are four young sisters living in solitude on a remote coffee plantation in the middle of the Sierra Maestra mountains. Reluctant to have any men in their house, they nevertheless give refuge to  a young rebel on his way to join the guerrillas- a decision that will dramatically change their lives.
