Synopsis

Three young flatmates seek their footing in today's Cuba, where you must fight for a home of your own. The young lovers Manuel and Lia manage to lay their hands on the keys of the house from which Tania has been evicted: no rent in a beautiful old house in the middle of the city. But Tania refuses to give up her home. Giraffes takes us along in this silent war, largely set indoors. All the pent-up irritations and sensuality reach boiling point when a hurricane approaches.
