In a Cuban village called Puerta de Golpe, the documental camera assumes the eye of a stranger, finding a humble community devastated by the last hurricane which passed through two years ago. Among faces, houses and landscapes, another side of the island of Cuba is revealed, filled with silence and solitude. A narrator describes this reality and suggests new meanings for what he sees, while a strange cold wind blows through the town, bringing perhaps another hurricane.

Lucas Bonolo was born in 1985 in São Paulo, Brazil. During adolescence he studied music at the University Tom Jobim and acting at Macunaíma Theatre School. In 2003 he joined the career of Journalism at the University of São Paulo (USP), the most prestigious college in the country. Between 2006 and 2007 he participated in exchange programs at the University of Genoa (Italy) and the University of Granada (Spain), where he studied History of Art and Aesthetics. He worked as a journalist in press agencies and also on TV. In 2008, supported by the Brazilian government, he moved to Cuba to study Cinema at the prestigious International Film School of Cuba (EICTV), where he graduated as a filmmaker.
