In the late 1980s and early 1990s, punk culture spread to Cuba. Cuban punks took the name Frikis and saw music and lifestyle as an instrument of protest against Fidel Castro's government and a way to express the anger of a generation. Being a Frikis meant being labeled as a homosexual, a drug addict, a thief, a prostitute and above all a "counter-revolutionary". The Frikis were poor in cane, repressed by the regime and excluded from all forms of protection and paid dearly for their choices, suffering continuous violence by the police. The spread of punk culture in Cuba coincided with a real social and health crisis: the spread of AIDS.
Two stories that will intertwine, in an extreme choice in the name of absolute freedom. But as Pablo, Miguel, Lazaro, Adoracion and Deiene will discover, freedom always has a price.
