Although I was born in Miami, my family is from Cuba. When I visited the country of my parents 3 years ago (from Havana to Pinar Del Rio trips), I was overcome with a deep sadness as to how pitiful the international media has covered the plight of Cubans on the island. Finally! This movie captures it all too well and so realistically, so accurately, so heroically!
It's about time!
Regardless of how one feels about Fidel Castro, Bill Clinton and the changes the US has made on Cuba's refugee policies, the people of Cuba live in absolute misery. No other 3rd world country in the Western Hemisphere has so much misery as Cuba. Economic poverty is not Cuba's worst problem. Misery is! Everywhere I went people on the island of Cuba lived in misery, fear, mistrust, suspicion, a basic ethos are missing, a will to live is gone, anxiety, depression, loneliness, desperateness and more.
If you want to understand the situation in Cuba as it is today, watch this film.
Pity that Hollywood films in America don't report the truth as it is, without getting bogged down on their stupid political self-righteous statements from their comfortable palatial Hollywood homes.
Watch this movie. It's great!
