Synopsis

Fernando Pérez (“Suite Havana”) paints a portrait of a city on hold through the unlikely friendship between two men who couldn’t be more different. Restaurant busboy Miguel dreams of leaving for New York; he spends his days working, waiting for a visa that may never be approved and taking care of his bedridden neighbor Diego, who suffers from AIDS. Miguel is the proverbial pessimist while Diego is the eternal optimist. They are surrounded by a cast of characters who are as loud, conflictive and colorful as the Havana street they live in.

Fernando Pérez (“”Suite Habana””) nos ofrece el retrato de una ciudad en espera a través de la improbable amistad entre dos hombres que son polos opuestos. Miguel sueña con irse a Nueva York; se pasa el día trabajando como camarero en un restaurante, esperando por una visa que quizás nunca sea aprobada y cuidando de su vecino Diego, un encamado paciente de SIDA. Miguel es el eterno pesimista y Diego es todo lo contrario. Ambos comparten espacio con un elenco de personajes que son tan altaneros, conflictivos y coloridos como la calle de La Habana en la que viven.
