Synopsis: A young hairdresser (Héctor Medina) does makeup for a troupe of drag performers in Havana, but dreams of being a performer. When he finally gets his chance to be on stage, a stranger emerges from the crowd and punches him in the face. The stranger is his father (Jorge Perugorría), a former boxer, who has been absent from his life for 15 years. As estranged father and son clash over their opposing expectations of each other, Viva becomes a love story as the men struggle to understand one another and become a family again. - Written by aGLIFF

He falls for the daughter of a wealthy landowner, Beatriz (the inimitable María Félix), despite the fact that the upper class is unsympathetic to the rebels’ cause and that she is engaged to an American (Eugenio Rossi). The local priest (Fernando Fernández, the director’s step-brother), an old friend of the general’s, tries to mediate between the fiery Beatriz and the headstrong Reyes during their rocky courtship. - Written by AFS
