Synopsis: THE MAN: Has Juan Martianos taken the phrase, "What can you do for your country?" to the extreme? How does a patriotic, Cuban sugar cane plantation owner end up in America as a high-ranking comrade in the A.C.P., and just how far will he go for the love of his country?
THE COUNTRY: Beginning with marauding pirates, fierce Spanish conquistadors, greedy American capitalists, corrupt tyrants and Communists--at what price does the "Jewel of the Antilles," a beautiful, vibrant, but hostile country, whose motto is "Homeland or Death," get robbed time, after time, of its freedom?
THE OPERATION: Masterminded by a man who is himself an orphan, how does an American-based orphanage, housing Cuban refugee boys, perform acts of treason against the powerful U.S.?
THE CHILDREN: In a country whose advertised slogan is "Nada de muy importante de nino," - why must children pay for their fathers' sins? Meet Sara Martin, the beautiful daughter who is about to become entangled in the tumultuous, parallel relationship between Cuba and the United States.
