24 year old Lissette Delgado was beaten, raped and then strangled with a towel. Marijuana is found in her apartment and her wardrobe is suspiciously beyond the means of a high school teacher. Lieutenant Conde is pressured by the highest authority' to conclude this investigation quickly when chance leads him into the arms of a beautiful redhead. This is a Havana of crumbling, grand buildings, secrets hidden behind faded doors and corruption. This is as much a eulogy for Cuba, its life of sex, music and great friendships as it is a story of a murder investigation.'
