This film was the first from post-revolutionary Cuba to be released in the United States. Set in the early sixties, it centers on a Europeanized Cuban intellectual critical of his bourgeois family for having left the country, but unable to overcome his alientation and become part of the new Cuban society. The "ultimate outsider," he contents himself by exploiting women, a metaphor for the colonization of Cuba.
