In Havana, Cuba, change is knocking at the door. Fidel Castro is dead; Trump is the new president in the U.S. Can the Caribbean republic remain the paradise that some consider it to be? What will become of the political utopia? Hubert Sauper constructs a number of tracks in his film. It is about the power of the camera, Hollywood, and imperialism. About tourists and supposed friends of Cuba, about a photographer from New York and complicity.
