Carlos a random passenger is concerned: "Everyday more and more of your people are in the streets!"
- "How do you call someone who is neither woman nor man?" His wife is clueless too: "Transvestite, Transsexual, queer, pan gender, third sex?!"
- "I am! That's all! No theory! No sciences! No discourses! No label! Case closed!" responds Reinier and keeps painting his lips.
- "Oye, tremendo arroz con mango!"* replied Carlos, "where is this supposed to end? What the hell are you?"
- "The new man!"** Reinier laughs loud while fixing his wig: "Viva la revolucion, companeros!" he replies and jumps out of the car.
The series ARROZ CON MANGOTHE NEW MEN portrays Cubans without labels in their everyday life.
(*the Cuban slang rice with mango is a typical expression for a sticky situation,something scandalous or a big mess
**Ambiguous allusion to the central aim of the socialist revolution:The creation of THE NEW MEN)
