Long off-limits to U.S. citizens, Cuba — Havana especially — is the most tragically beautiful place in the Caribbean. On this road trip from Havana to Santiago de Cuba, filmmakers travel in a classic 1950s Buick across the island nation. In Havana’s old city, a walking tour takes viewers to intriguing and historical locations such as Plaza de Cathedral. The film also documents a trip to Pinar del Rio to sample cigars and see the tobacco fields.
Next are the beautiful beaches of Matanzas and the sugar plantations and colorful towns of Cienfuegos and Camaguey. Viewers will see the architectural gem of Trinidad, the Bay of Pigs, and the vibrant city of Santiago de Cuba.
