This dramatic independent film, shot throughout a 3-year period, captures the agonising process of organizing an „illicit departure„ from Cuba. We meet Yosbel, who struggles to support his entire family and has attempted to
escape to the US nine times. With his friend Carlos, they have put together an improvised boat crew and will attempt the crossing once more. Six months later we meet up with Yosbel in Manhattan, and hear his first impressions of
life in his „dreamland„.
