Revealing the stark realities for the poorest rural Cubans with unique access and empathy, this is the story of a 30-something mother of four longing for a better life. The tension between the wife and her aging husband – one desperate to leave, the other content to stay –builds into a high-stakes family drama after her brother and the couple’s neighbours escape.
