When Aunt Yoyita dies during a visit to Gina in Guantánamo, Gina, along
with Yoyita's childhood sweetheart, the aging Cándido, must take the
body to Havana. To their annoyance, Gina's overbearing husband Adolfo, a
punctilious undertaker with political ambitions, takes charge of the
journey. On the road, they keep crossing paths with Mariano, a trucker
who's a playboy with a woman at every way station. He and Gina recognize
each other: he was her student and wrote her of how much he loved her,
then dropped out of school in embarrassment. Before they reach Havana,
Gina realizes she can choose between Adolfo and Mariano: does Aunt
Yoyita's life help Gina decide?
