Description

Cubans have been fighting against Spain for many years. In 1898, the American government, using as an excuse the explosion of the battleship Maine, jumps into the war, supposedly siding with the Cubans. Samuel and Simon are two children living intensively in the moment when Spain is defeated until the Americans take over and begin acting like an occupying army.
