The setting of the movie is Cuba in 1959. Major Robert Dapes is a British mercenary hired by General Bello in order to find a way to stop the advance of Castro's guerillas. Dapes will soon find out that he's come too late. The society is totally corrupted, the army inefficient and the ideas of the Barbudos backed by most of the Cuban population.
Dapes will eventually meet Alexandra Lopez de Pulido, the wife of the son of Juan Pulido, one of the wealthiest men in the island. Dapes and Alexandra, 15 years old then, had an affair in Northern Africa during WWII. As Alex rekindles their relation, Dapes is sure that she will leave the island with him as soon as the political situation becomes out of control. But Alex greatly appreciates her new life in the upper spheres of the Cuban bourgeoisie.
