Cada Alma – SYNOPSIS
Beginning in 1956, Cada Alma (Every Soul), tells three intertwined true stories about my family trapped in Castro’s communist Cuba. Once a successful professional, my father Agustin risks his life daily to steal and deal in contraband for our family’s survival. My uncle Nelson — an egocentric college student –risks his life to escape illegally, only to obsess about returning to rescue the family he left behind. After years of denial, my uncle Chory, a loyal revolutionary, confronts the deplorable reality; he fought to empower a tyrant who promised freedom, only to lose his own enduring 7 years of torture in a Cuban prison. My family’s journey reveals that we aren’t all that different; every soul is connected by a basic human right, the right to be free.
