Nuestro Mar

A Film by Eileen Hofer

Synopsis

OUR SEA

In Havana, Emilio watches the prima ballerina dancing. He repairs her ballet shoes but doesn’t dare talk to her. He’s too shy. At home, he takes care of his elderly mother and spends some time with his neighbour, the singer Omara Portuondo. Together they watch the sea changing colour. A storm is brewing.
