WIFI PLAZA CUBA
SWITZERLAND - CUBA 3 MIN
The Cuban soprano singer Maria Dolores Garcia no longer has an audience. These days, the residents of her town San Antonio de los Banos prefer to spend their evenings in the central plaza, where they have access to Wi-Fi. Since the audience won’t come to the theatre, Maria Dolores Garcia decides to go to the Wi-Fi plaza and sing a song for the people gathered there.
