    This controversial documentary looks at Cuba's future from the outspoken and dynamic perspective of Cuban youth. Young men and women born after the 1959 Cuban Revolution face the challenge of finding solutions to Cuba's economic crisis in the Nineties. Committed socialists and disillusioned dissidents passionately debate the merits of socialism vs. capitalism, the need for social change, internal difficulties and international politics. Interviews and spontaneous, street corner debates are interwoven with rarely seen views of Cuban youth culture. The result is an unprecedented view of a critical moment in Cuban history and Cuban/U.S. relations.
