This film provides an overview of U.S.-Cuban relations and spotlights the case of the “Cuban 5” (five men who were arrested for gathering information on extremist groups in Miami that launched violent attacks of terrorism against both Cuban people and property). The Cuban 5 were imprisoned, while those they were monitoring — who have publicly taken responsibilty for terrorist attacks — walk free.
