A surprising hit when it played commercially in the US, Alea's breakthrough feature follows the dilemmas of a middle-class intellectual who is unable to commit himself to his country's social revolution. His perceptions are interwoven with documentary footage of historical events (the Bay of Pigs invasion, the Cuban Missile Crisis) to provide a complex picture of an individual alienated from the world around him.
