Tony is a Cuban-American Metals trader. One sunny morning, while fishing off Key West-Florida, he finds the wreck of a makeshift raft floating close to the beach. The rafters names were carved on the wood of the boat (Pablo and Mariana). Tony travels to Cuba to find the Family of the rafters to tell them what he had found. This journey also becomes a discovery of his own Cuban roots. Tony finds the family and, shocked and surprised, finds the beautiful Mariana whom he presumed had died at sea, and she awakens in him his true destiny. Written by
One of the best stories ever done from a foreigner director in reference to the Bid Island
This is a beautiful movie with a subject needed to be filmed. It brings different aspects of our Cuban life and identity without taking a political position, excellent done! The film has captivated audiences all over the world. The immigration and people separation by the sea. That power that joins and separates us. In Cuba, after just 16 screenings, 15.000 people came to the theater to enjoy and support not just the story but the project. The music and the treatment of the image creates the atmosphere of our beautiful Island missed and loved by we all Cubans. The awards collected so far are deserved and well obtained. CONGRATULATIONS!
