In a Havana shaken by Fidel's retirement, a young seamstress, trapped in a clothing factory, dreams of designing beautiful dresses. With no support from her adorable but lazy Cuban boyfriend, her life takes a turn when she meets a dazzling capitalist who fans her hopes. After many deceptions and surprises, Eva has to choose between the two men she loves. Hers is an unexpected decision; one which makes for a humorous metaphor of Cuba's future options.
