In the summer of 1994, a crew of television reporters with unprecedented access filmed and interviewed seven Cubans and their relatives before they set out on homemade rafts as economic refugees headed for the U.S. The crew followed them as they were rescued at sea and transported to the refugee camp at the U.S. military base at Guantanamo. Seven years later, the TV crew reconnects with their subjects to discover the outcome of their pursuit of the American dream. "Insanely ambitious. . .The scope and complexity of a novel! . . . Lovingly crafted."-Stuart Klawans, THE NATION. (120 min)
