While visiting the small town of Guantanamo, the famous singer Yoyita (Conchita Brando) dies unexpectedly while reminiscing with her old flame, Candido (Raúl Eguren). When Yoyita’s niece, Georgina (Mirta Ibarra), makes plans for a funeral in Havana, her undertaker husband (Carlos Cruz) uses the opportunity to implement his gas- and money-saving coffin transportation scheme across Cuba. The trip results in misadventures, black-market dealings and insights into life and politics in Cuba.
