Nestled above a dilapidated district of Havana is a secret village, protected from the noise of the streets it overlooks. These makeshift houses are inhabited by Roberto, Lola, Tita, Arturo, Juan, José, Reynal, Léonardo, Alejandro, Diosbel, Katiuska, Gabriel, Jean and Marie. Like many other inhabitants of central Havana. They were forced to take refuge in the heights in the face of chronic housing shortages. From their perch, perched at the top of the city, they bear witness to a society in full transformation.
