Havana teenagers Raul and Elio, fed up with ekeing out a living serving wealthy foreign tourists, decide to escape Cuba by crossing the “river” to Miami under the cover of darkness. When Raul’s twin sister, Lila, discovers their plan, she insists on joining them aboard their dangerously makeshift raft. Bold, visually stunning, this is a film made with urgency and skill, about young people in desperate circumstances and the lengths to which they will go to survive.
