    Content Type: Movie

    Focussing on women from different classes - aristocracy, the bourgeoisie and peasantry - with each participating in the struggle for Cuba's liberation, this two-anhalf hour political allegory is segmented into three episodes, with each set in seminal historical periods during Cuba's beleaguered history - the independence war against Spain, the Machado dictatorship and post-Revolution.

    As each woman confronts the specific historical dilemmas - personal liberation in the face of class and sex discrimination and the decolonisation and reformation of Cuba - their stories provide an accurate and illuminating historical survey of an emergent national consciousness, leading up to and following the Revolution.
