In a fictional village near a Soviet military base in 1960s Cuba, the Cubans Sergio and Aurelio fight for the love of the beautiful farmer Lisanka. The Cuban Missile Crisis is about to begin, and a group of Soviet soldiers arrive along with it to the village, among them Volodla, who becomes a dangerous rival for the two young Cubans. Inevitably, everyday life in the village and the lives of its inhabitants will be altered, as the complicated love triangle becomes a metaphor for the tense political situation of the Cold War.
