A Cuban farmer gets a six-year sentence for selling his own cow. In this family saga a personal story is inseparably intertwined with the greater Cuban history.
Belga and Salvador (a Cuban mother and a Dutch father and filmmaker) undertake the impossible by trying to explain their 2-year-old son Luca the absurd story of his Cuban uncle Ezequiel, who has been sentenced to six years in prison for selling his own cow. They travel to the remote village of Sibanicú in the heart of Cuba, where Ezequiel's criminal case and the intimate story of Belga’s family turn out to be the result of the greater Cuban history.
