40 years old, most of which he spent in Cuba doing absolutely nothing. Suddenly
some strange things start to happen, people are turning violent attacking one
to the other. Juan was first convinced it’s just another stage of the
Revolution. Official media refer to the attacks as isolated incidents provoked
by Cuban dissidents paid by the US government. Little by little Juan and his
friends start to realize that the attackers are not normal human beings and
that killing them is quite a difficult task. Juan decides that the best way of
facing the situation is making some money out of it…..Sponsored by the
