Havana, spring 1971: The poet Heberto Padilla has just been released and appears before the Cuban writers' union where he intones a "heartfelt self-criticism", declares himself a counterrevolutionary agent and accuses many of his colleagues present of complicity, including them, his wife. A month ago, his arrest on charges of attacking the security of the Cuban state mobilized the intellectual vanguard of the entire world, who wrote a letter to Fidel Castro demanding the freedom of the poet, whose only sin was to dissent through his work. poetics. The writer's mea culpa, whose recording is shown to the public for the first time, marks the narrative line of a story in which testimonies from Gabriel García Márquez, Julio Cortázar, Mario Vargas Llosa, Jean-Paul Sartre, Jorge Edwards and Fidel Castro appear.
