Discontented with political and economic oppression, 125,000 Cubans fled their homes through the port of Mariel and sailed to the United States in 1980. Thirty years later, one Marielito risks returning to a country that rejected him in search of friends and loved ones he left behind. He must see, touch, and remember the land of his birth. Set against the historical context of the Mariel Boatlift, Jose Garcia and other Marielitos tell stories of leaving their homeland and coming to the United States.
