The director went to Cuba for 3 months with the intention to make a documentary but he didn’t have a subject. Taking place over the course of just one night, Walk chronicles the events that unfolded as he walked around the streets of Havana with friends he met there.

En un viaje a Cuba por tres meses, el director tiene como propósito hacer un documental pero no tiene tema. Caminar transcurre en una noche y es una crónica de los eventos que se desarrollan mientras camina por las calles de La Habana con dos amigos que conoció allí.
