Havanna in den 90er Jahren: In einem Eiscafe trifft der systemkritische Künstler Diego auf den naiven Studenten David. Während der schwule Diego darauf hofft, den schönen Jung-kommunisten ins Bett zu bekommen, wittert der linientreue David die Chance, einen Staats-feind zu entlarven. Zwischen den beiden entwickeln sich leidenschaftliche Debatten über persönliche und politische Freiheiten. Unter Diegos Einfluss beginnt Davids Idealbild vom System zu bröckeln. Bald verbindet die beiden eine tiefe Freundschaft, so dasss die ursprünglichen Ziele - Verführung auf der einen, Bespitzelung auf der anderen Seite - völlig an Bedeutung verlieren. Doch dann erhält Diego Berufsverbot (Quelle: Stauffacher)
