Casa Blanca is a forgotten fishing town situated at the entrance to the Havana Harbor. Nelsa, a 70-year-old woman paralyzed after a stroke, lives on the first floor of a large apartment house. She shares the lone room of the small flat with Vladimir, her 35-year-old son, affected with Down syndrome. The film presents a close, intimate picture of Vladimir and Nelsa's days, fired by their meetings and partings, dependencies and bonds, moments of joy and moments of conflict.
