The harrowing story of courage and commitment by one family embroiled in the political turmoil of 1950s Cuba, torn between idealism and survival. In less than 24 hours, this family is forced to leave their home and their country and everything they owned. This play is one of three finalists in the 2018 Women Playwrights Competition sponsored by the Centenary Stage Company.
