The film follows Dina Stars and Adriano ComePizza who are among the first generation of YouTubers in Cuba. Like their peers all over the world, they are enthusiastic about fashion, music and technology. Raising their voices via digital media, they want to participate in their country’s social transformation. After Dina experiences an attempted sexual assault, she begins to dedicate her channel to women’s rights issues. Her political activism, however, provokes repercussions when Cuba experiences the biggest anti-government protests in decades.
