About the project

An adaptation of the famous novel and film Pay it Forward set in Cuba. A young cuban student surprises his social studies class with a simple yet seemingly impossible idea of how to make the world a better place. Challenged by his classmates, he sets out to prove that his pay it forward chain can work in the Cuban reality. 


This short film was part of a social initiative project in Cuba led by V5 Initiative. The project’s mission was to engage Cuban high school students in the performing arts and teach them crucial social and life lessons through theatre, improvisation and film. The project turned out to be a huge success, involving 40 different students in both a professional theatre production of Lorca’s Blood Wedding and Nexo, the short film featured here.
