Documentary on Cuban poet Emilio Ballagas shoot in Holguin
During the 50's of the 20th century the poet left prints in Buenaventura which are shown in the documentary as they come out from the testimony of Magdalena Lois, one of the servants in charge of looking after Emilio's health along with Alicia Ballagas, the poet's sister.

The 10 minute story talks of the intellectual's stay in that town from present-day Holguin province, which has become a source of study for the documentary producers -students from the Higher Art Institute (Holguin branch) who have been deepening on the life of a poet who has rooted in Cuban literature.

The testimonies are endorsed by noted figures of Cuban letters as poet Pablo Armando Fernandez and narrator Roberto Fernandez Retamar, experts on Ballagas' life and work.
