ASSAULT TO FREEDOM

Synopsis: 

LONG SYNOPSIS

 

Ramon Garcia was only fifteen years old when he first starts planning this escape. He realized that to get his freedom, he needs to escape from his beloved Cuba.

In order to accomplish this, he will need a very important element: a compass. While thinking of places where he could find one, he remembers that in his school,

in one of the classrooms, there is a very old compass, which he would later steal to help him on his journey to freedom.

In the midst to all the planning he could not help to feel great sorrow escaping from the place where he was born and raised, the land where he was once the happiest,

but a land that has become so hostile and unbearable to those who could not agree and accept the new strict government regimen. 

Four years later Ramon along with Otto Fresneda and Frayda Delgado, he takes the lead on planning the assault on the passenger boat,

which will take place a year later with the help of Pepe Dans, Rafael Contador, Fabiola Delgado and Maximilano Martinez.

All this will happen in the middle of the revolution and they will be led toward the freedom they so greatly dreamed of.
