La vida cotidiana en La Habana, Cuba, es la base de estos tres cuentos. Una mujer muere durante el parto y el padre nuevo se huye abandonando su hijito nuevo en la casa de su abuela. Una mujer sola es cortejada por un hombre anciano pero no puede olvidar a su primer amor. La relación de una pareja se deshace cuando piensan que no pueden tener hijos.
A look at life and everyday struggles in Havana through three main stories -- when a woman dies in childbirth, the new father runs away; a lonely woman is courted by an older man, but can't forget her first love; a couple's relationship crumbles when they can't conceive a child.

Reminiscent of the Italian Neo realist films of the post-war era, Barrio Cuba exudes the gritty and grimy island's poverty and passion under Castro. Excellent performances from the cast! I am not used to happy endings in films anymore except in comedies but this one provided a dilemma whether it's good or bad.
