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
I'm Cuban. In my view the director shows perfectly well a story of our generation, being 30 something and almost second generation after the revolution, I've been waiting for someone to take this subject. Finally!! The film speaks about the people who have left and people who have stayed. The return to the roots and the possibility of change. Music is wonderful ( a friend of mine was in Italy when the composer received the award for the best Soundtrack) the acting is natural and good. Finally a film where we can here and understand a clear Cuban accent! I'm sorry about Carmen comments. It happens sometimes that people don't like some art piece. We say in Cuba that colors were invented to satisfy the different tastes. Back to the film, anyone who has a relative who has left his country or who itself has left, will feel the magic of the movie and its feeling, making you moved, sad and satisfied at the same time
