Documentary “I am your father and your mother” says Yesuan to his younger sister Karla. Both live in Cuba. Antoin, the eldest of the siblings, is working on his career as an opera singer in France. Four years ago, the siblings’ ways separated after the death of their mother. Their last shared memory: an afternoon in Lenin Park in Havana. The next day, Antoin packed his things and left for Europe. Yesuan and Karla were left behind. They miss their brother and try to come to terms with their new roles in the family. Their relationship is not uncomplicated: pubescent Karla feels her brother treats her like a child and wants to rid herself of his control. In parallel montages that blur the borders with fiction, Lenin Park shows three siblings’ everyday life between distance and longing
