LA PLAZA IN MATANZAS, CUBA CIRCA 2011, A SETTING IN "A WOUND IN TIME" CIRCA 1957

This is a video of La Plaza or the marketplace in present day Matanzas, Cuba.  It is the location of a scene circa 1957 in which a young Millie sees the love of her life, Ruben Centron, for the first time in the screenplay adaptation of  "A Wound In Time". She was a poor girl who longed for a beautiful dress she admired there.  Ruben, a property owner purchased the dress for her.  They eventually fell in love.  It was probably very different back then, with plentiful products.  But I'm sure the vitality of the marketplace remained the same .
