Publicly gay novelist Andrés has been banned by the Cuban government from writing another word. With a political rally coming up, they intend to keep Andrés under close scrutiny in order to prevent him from communicating with the press. Enter Santa, who is sent to Andrés’ countryside home to watch over him for the next three days. Despite their mutual distrust and suspicion, the pair find themselves quietly questioning their allegiances and ultimately coming to understand one another. Santa & Andres delivers a thoughtful, relevant rumination on the notions of hatred and tolerance.
