In the summer of 1994, two Spanish TV reporters interviewed seven Cubans and their families just before they embarked on a dangerous boat trip to the USA. Seven years later they found the survivors in the American refugee camp in Guantánamo. While their families in Cuba have no news of them, the film portrays the refugees’ lives, which turned out to be far from the desired “American dream”.
