In 1983 Andrs, a non-compliant gay writer, resides in the rural mountain region of Eastern Cuba, having been blacklisted by the government for "ideological problems." After a major event occurs, the government decides someone reliable must be appointed to watch over him and make sure he does not make any political statements. Santa, a country girl who works on a farm, is assigned to the task. For three days in a row Santa will sit in front of Andrs' hut and keep watch over him. Santa and Andrs are as close as it gets to being true opposites, and are not meant to like each other. However, they soon find that they have more things in common than they expected.
