Eunice, a teenage girl running away from her incestuous father, meets Alejandro, a rebellious rocker who has also left home. They decide to travel together, and escape to Havana, hoping to find paradise. Instead, they encounter hardship—it is the early 1990s, the “Special Period” of deprivation in Cuba—and begin to contemplate the unthinkable: infecting themselves with the HIV virus so they can be admitted to an AIDS hospice. An unforgettable tale of youth, love, sadness, and, ultimately, hope.
