Two boys. Two worlds. One Cuba.
Raised in a wealthy neighborhood of Havana, 12-year-old Mayito has everything at his fingertips: loving and affectionate parents, delectable home-cooked meals, and, most recently, the latest PlayStation 3 video game console. His classmate Carlos, on the other hand, comes from a low-class residential district where he cleans and sells empty beer bottles just so he can save enough money to buy the kite of his dreams. When Mayito steps into the impoverished community for the first time, he discovers a strange new world. Carlos’ humble lifestyle both shatters Mayito’s notion of “normal” and entices him to experience it himself. Set against the backdrop of socialist labor marches, Habanastation inspires people from all social strata to put aside their differences and come together as one.
