Rubén vive en Cuba y Andy exiliado en los Estados Unidos. Ambos están atrapados por la historia en polos opuestos y quieren cambiar de sitio, pero no lo logran.
Andy (Orlando Urdaneta) lives in Cuba, and would like to emigrate to the U.S. He has ideas about the prosperity of life there, and does not fully appreciate the pleasant life he has in Havana, where children are able safely to play on the street. By contrast, Ruben (Omar Moynello) lives in Union City, New Jersey, and thinks fondly of the old days in Cuba. His neighborhood is populated by druggies, thieves and every kind of imaginable lowlife. Also, it is very cold in New Jersey.
