The film raises the question: why are people who fight terrorism imprisoned in the U.S. while known terrorists are allowed to walk the streets of Miami freely? It follows the case of the five Cubans currently serving long sentences in U.S. jails for trying to prevent terrorist attacks on Cuba. It also depicts the long history of violence against innocent Cubans by right-wing groups based in Miami that are supported by the U.S. government.
 
 
With Speaker to Follow:
Jose Pertierra
 
Washington D.C. lawyer who represents Venezuela in the extradition case of Luis Posada Cariles, wanted for the bombing of a Cuban passenger plane that killed 73 people.
