A snowstorm in a heatwave. A mysterious package delivered forty-two years late. A young man who speaks the poetry of the Gods. And a girl who can fly. Something strange is happening in Havana.
Roland Schimmelpfennig’s Cuban fantasia imagines a family gripped by a miracle and a neighbourhood unsure of its future, seduced by dreams of the past.
