This powerful drama set in 1956 Cuba centers on young Larita (Laura De la Uz), an intelligent girl who dreams of studying in America. Brought up in an impoverished family, Larita tries to win a scholarship to continue her education. While working to overcome her disadvantages, Larita finds inspiration in the stories of Ernest Hemingway, especially his book The Old Man and the Sea, whose main character's circumstances mirror her own.
