Eduardo and Camila are two young Cubans, living in a bustling neighborhood in Havana. Their social backgrounds couldn’t be more diverse. Eduardo is a musician and Camila just graduated from college. Nevertheless, they share a deep and innocent love, until Eduardo asked Camila to marry him.
With joy in her heart, her impulsive reaction is to say Yes. But her family, deeply concerned with Eduardo’s social standing, pressures her to reconsider. Promptly they arrange for her to graduate within her studies in Madrid.
At first, Camila sees this experience as an opportunity for her personal growth, and she tries to convince Eduardo that three years apart will be a short wait for their never ending love. Saddened he accepts her departure and, as the months passes by, he becomes more and more restless about not hearing from her. What he doesn’t know is that Camila’s family is holding back her love letters for him.
María, Eduardo’s secret admirer for years, sees his situation as a fortunate opportunity to finally be able to seduce him. Lonely and with his lost hope to hear from Camila ever again, he finds an unsatisfying comfort in María for a short time. Still longing for his lost love, he cuts himself off from Maria and social life and seeks fulfillment in his work.
However, a year later, Camila returns to Havana to find that Eduardo is avoiding any contact with her. Desperately she tries to get in touch with him and finds him eventually at his work place. He faults her for a lack of sincerity to their love. At this point, they discover that Camilas family is held responsible in keeping back her letters.
After all, they decide to take their destiny in their own hand and promise each other, to only believe in one another. Having conquered all these hurdles, Eduardo and Camila start a new life together in their neighborhood, celebrating their eternal love and passion – a triumph over social and circumstantial barriers.
