This comedy-drama takes a strong political stand on the divisive issue of the United States embargo with Cuba. The play begins with flamboyant writer, Federico making his first trip back to Cuba 30-some years after immigrating to the States as a child. Federico is joined on his journey by his friend, Fred and together in Cuba they meet Ernesto, a car driver and lifelong resident of Havana. The three men get to know each other better and learn where the real boundaries of the world lie.
