Additional Info

It's 1979 and Lizette Marquez is about to marry a nice Jewish boy in a ceremony at Woodland Hills Country Club that is costing thousands of dollars. While she and her extended three-generational family enjoy the fruits of material success in their adopted country, they remain haunted by memories of Cuba.
