Amidst the searing heat of the Cuban countryside, an old couple lives in an isolated farmstead. Amanda’s impossible obsession: to experience the snows of winter. Finally exhausted and unable, any longer, to care for Amanda in her growing confusion, Raúl summons all his love and ingenuity to help her realise her dream.

With extraordinary performances from Carlos Perez Pena and Nilda Collado under the compassionate and inexorable gaze of Luis Ernesto Donas’ camera, the profound beauty of this little film is, literally, indescribable: so I won’t even try. See it if you possibly can.
