"Viva" stars Héctor Medina as Jesus, a young hairdresser working at a Havana nightclub that showcases drag performers, who dreams of being a performer himself.

Encouraged by his mentor, Mama (Luis Alberto García), Jesus finally gets his chance to take the stage. But when his estranged father Angel (Jorge Perugorría) abruptly reenters his life, his world is quickly turned upside down.

As father and son clash over their opposing expectations of each other,"Viva" becomes a love story as the men struggle to understand one another and reconcile as a family.

"Viva" was a hit at the 2015 Telluride Film Festival, and is Ireland’s entry for the Best Foreign Film Academy Award this year.

The movie directed by Paddy Breathnach also starts Luis Manuel Álvarez, Renata (Maikel Machín Blanco) and Laura Alemán.

It will be in theaters on February 5, 2016. Watch the trailer below.
