520 |a After several trips to Cuba, photographer Joe Guerriero felt the need to more fully understand the United States' trade embargo against the island nation-a policy still in force more than five decades after the Cuban revolution. Is the embargo a justifiable reaction to the revolutionary government's Marxist ideology or an outdated act of reprisal? In this documentary, Guerriero inquires into the reasons for the embargo and seeks to identify the opposing interests of the two countries while also illustrating the embargo's effects on the Cuban people. He presents multiple perspectives through conversations with Cuban exiles and American activists in the U.S. and personal reflections of everyday Cubans caught in a situation of acute material and cultural privation in order to shed light on the political and human sides of this situation.
