The acting wasn't organic. It bored me and I fell asleep. I left after the intermission.

Description

By Carlos Lacámara

In the summer of 1980, Fidel Castro announced that he would allow Cubans living in The United States to retrieve their relatives from the island. However, when their boats arrived at Mariel, they were only allowed to take certain members of their families aboard and were required to take criminals and mental patients along with them back to the U.S.

Rolando and his son carry a convicted murderer, a raving lunatic and, worst of all, Rolando’s brother-in-law who had betrayed him to the Communists twenty-years before. When a storm leaves their tiny vessel helplessly adrift at sea, the tension escalates as the refugees find themselves in a desperate battle against the elements, each other and the demons of their past.
