Faces, sounds and voices from Havana. Off-screen and with complete honesty, Cubans tell us about their idea of freedom. "I am free – this lie I have repeated so often, that I have started to believe it:" They are well aware of the restrictions imposed on them as human beings. Public enemy number one is Yoani Sոnchez, a female blogger who exposes the nature of the system in her articles. "Freedom is the freedom to scream in public that you are not free," she says. Many desperate Cubans have braved the hazardous crossing to the United States. But in the words of poet Konstantinos P. Kavafis you will always be walking the streets of Havana wherever you go - you can't shake off the past.
