Written by Mark O'Halloran and directed by Paddy Breathnach. Jesus (Héctor Media), a young hairdresser working at a Havana nightclub dreams of being a performer. Encouraged by his mentor, Mama (Luis Alberto García), Jesus finally gets his chance to take the stage. But when his estranged father Angel (Jorge Perugorría) abruptly re-enters his life, his world is quickly turned upside down. Set in contemporary Cuba, Viva is a tender love story of a father and son struggling to escape from opposing expectations, duty and the burden of past sins.
