A schoolteacher grapples with the socio-political changes in her country. Gómez’s only feature was also the first film to be directed by an Afro-Cuban woman. Weaving documentary footage with a fictional narrative, revealing transformations taking place in Cuba after the Revolution, it is also a critical study of the female condition.
