After risking his life crossing the Florida Straits on a raft, a young Cuban searches Miami for his long-absent father. When a political shift makes him America’s first Cuban undocumented immigrant, he must battle the new and bigger fear of deportation, while trying to find where he really belongs. This story synthesizes many of our personal experiences as Cuban immigrants, being a fish out of water in a new and very polarized landscape.

A discussion will take place following the screening.
