El Manguito is a small village in the inaccessible woodlands of Cuba’s Sierra Maestra. Twelve people live there, cut off from the outside world, without electricity and drivable roads. The film follows Idael and his friends and family through their everyday life, including the education of Idael’s youngest son by an outsider who makes the journey to El Manguito five times a week. While education is provided, many other things seem to be neglected. Travel to the unknown world of El Manguito and see how deeply rooted the socialist system is in Cuba.
