Havana, July 26, 1959. The disoriented members of the high society and the petty bourgeoisie realise that their position, their wealth and even their life are in danger. Panic is raging. Carolina feels that her journalistic essays, so reasonable only a few days before, lose their luster among so many transformations. Felicia, sister of the hated police commander under Batista, feels besieged by the bearded men who interrogate her day and night. The Countess takes refuge in her mansion, becoming a nun of the revolution. At the same time, a ghost roams her gardens.
