A successful retiring actress Aunt Yoyita has returned to the town of Guantanamera 50 years after leaving it and her first love, Candido, behind. She is welcomed by her niece, Georgina, who is married to a rigid bureaucrat, Adolfo. Yoyita is touchingly reunited with Candido, who remains as deeply in love with her as he was 50 years ago. Their rekindled passions brings Yoyita to such paroxysms of joy that she promptly dies in his arms. Hoping to advance his career, Adolfo has pioneered a state plan to cut Cuban fuel consumption, which entails transporting corpses to their burial grounds by exchanging the funeral's cortege's vehicles at each town along the way. Yoyita's casket must, therefore, be driven to Havana according to this new system in the company of Georgina, Adolfo, Candido and a chauffeur. By strange series of coincidences, a truck driven by Mariano, a former student of Georgina's, who had fallen in love with her, yet never had the courage to pursue her, is taking the same route.
