Melaza

In the Cuban village of Melaza, named after the once flourishing sugarcane fields, time stands still. Even when all kinds of things happen, nothing ever changes. The State pretends to take care of everything, but it shuts the rum factory and makes swimming lessons impossible. MELAZA is the heart-warming love story of Aldo and Monica. They try very hard to earn some extra money. Their attempts get the couple into deeper and deeper trouble. But together, the lovers manage to pull through it.
