Synopsis: La Edad de la Peseta (a common Cuban phrase that refers to the period right before adolescence) is a quirky, surprising, coming-of-age film that will give lovers of Cuban cinema cause for celebration. Set in 1958 in Havana, the year that culminates the Revolution, ten-year-old Samuel has just arrived in town with his recently divorced mother. They take up residence in the house of his eccentric grandmother Violeta, and Samuel is introduced to a new, mysterious world where Samuel finds himself an adult in comparison to his child-like mother.
