"We cannot be sure of having something to live for unless we are willing to die for it."
        
        Cuba. 1955. A time of darkness and strife. The dictator, Batista, is holding onto power with a vice grip. Violence and corruption rule the streets with any opposition subjected to the barrel of a gun.
              
        A young man, Dario Ruiz, is caught amidst these troubled times and sinks to the depths of despair. He seeks refuge among a band of revolutionaries, where he gets his heart captured by a fiery and passionate fighter, Juanita. A long journey awaits him, with love, triumph, failure, and betrayal all part of the arduous march to freedom.
              
 "The revolution is not an apple that falls when it is ripe. You have to make it fall."
