After 18 years living in Italy, Barbara Ramos returns to live in Cuba. In the town of Santa Clara, she discovers through family and friends what has changed in Cuba but also what has not and will likely never change. Shot over a period of three years - the time it took Barbara to build her dream house - "Return To Cuba" chronicles her life in the wake of Raul Castro's liberal reforms and reconciliation with the United States of America. A new Cuban reality reveals itself with energy and humour!
