Vuelos Prohibidos / Forbidden Flights

Vuelos Prohibidos / Forbidden Flights

Monique is a Parisian in her mid 30’s. On her way to Havana to meet her Cuban father for the first time, she meets Mario in a Paris airport – also Cuba bound. Grounded by weather conditions, the two share their fears, doubts, hopes into the complexities of Cuba and Cuban identity. At the same time, their growing attraction signal another type of journey.
