Spotlight on homegrown cinema

Two young women from Québec, Manu and Alexa-Jeanne, head to Cuba for a holiday. There, they soak up the rays, frolic in the surf, dine out and wander through Havana. The contours of their friendship take shape through chance meetings and informal discussions with the locals — exchanges that also nod to a certain vision of humanity and North/South relations.
