Story about Cuban emigrants in Spain
23 October 2001 | by See all my reviews

Cubans go away from their country looking for better standard of life, some go to USA and others go to Europe. The reality is that they were, are and will be Cubans for ever, missing always their motherland. This film is an evidence of homesickness by Cubans. It also shows how the naive emigrants are sometime exploited by even experienced compatriots.
