On July 26, 2003, the 50th anniversary of the Moncada Army Barracks raid in Santiago de Cuba, something unexpected happens. When Fidel Perez and his brother accidentally tumble to their deaths from their Havana balcony, the cry, "Fidel has fallen," is misinterpreted by neighbors. The misinformation quickly ripples outward, reawakening the city. Three Cubans in particular are affected by the news -- an elderly vagrant Saturnina, Professor Pedro Valle, and his student Camilo -- all haunted by the past and now forced to confront a new future, perhaps another revolution. Their stories are beautifully intertwined as they converge in the frantic crowd that gathers in La Plaza de la Revolucion. By turns humorous and deeply poignant, The Death of Fidel Perez reflects on the broken promises of the Cuban Revolution and reveals the heart of a people with a long collective memory.
