This contemporary documentary looks at the lives of two friends, both named Jose, as they deal with the ramifications of gay life in Cuba. Jose Louis works in the tourism industry and has aspirations of leaving his country for a more accepting nation, while his friend Jose Rodriguez, a professional dancer, has had many opportunities to leave Cuba but is determined to make a life for himself in his homeland.

Shot without permission from Cuban authorities, the film follows the two friends as they spend time partying and enjoying life in Havana’s gay scene, knowing that they may soon part ways. It is an exploration of life within a struggling minority, interwoven with the complexities of friendship and love.
