CU of sliced meats on a buffet table inside the Cohiba Melia, a luxury hotel in the capital city. Cut to panning tight LS of the smoking room, then a MS of one of the crew walking into the humidor. Cut to CU of a small wooden humidor, its drawers being opened: alas, its filled with premium cigars of the Cuban kind... smell the jealousy. Cut to panning (right) tight LS of the dim bar/lounge area; cut to MS of the camera crew sitting at the bar, looking through menus, smoking six dollar Cuban cigars, drinking liquor and/or Cuban coffee... it's not fair, it's just not. Cut to MS of framed photographs of smoking celebrities: Orson Welles, Sigmund Freud, Groucho Marx and Arthur Rubinstein (?); CU's as well. Cut to CU of B&W photo of Winston Churchill smoking a cigar.
