On November 25th of 2016, the historical leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, dies in Havana Ruz, at 90 years old. The date marks the beginning of 9 days of official mourning, during which the hectic cuban life is deprived of music and alcohol. They are days that pass between the multitudinous samples of reaffirmation before the “physical disappearance” of the “commander” and the intimate silences. An unpublished trip, guido for the omnipresent television, the days when the people of Cuba reflected on their recent history in front of an uncertain future.
