Great movie
20 June 2020 | by marcusflorida2See all my reviews

I had a great time watching this movie. It is always good to hear the other side of political stories. Yes, there's always another side. So, the movie is entertaining for sure. Every bad (one star) review here is simply politically biased. It is just people that can't stand Cuba's point of view. My advise is that you should watch and judge it by yourself. It's not supposed to be a documentary, but it is an incredible story based on real facts and real people. Have fun.
