The distance between Cuba and the United States: tantalizingly close yet worlds apart. When a beautiful showgirl married to Cuba’s most famous baseball player escapes to the sea, only a boy and a boat and a belief in the “American Dream” keep her afloat. Planning to rendezvous with her husband after an exhibition game in El Norte, the showgirl risks everything only to discover that crossing the straits might be easier than spanning allegiances. Set against the backdrop of actual games played between the Cuba National Team and the Baltimore Orioles, Habana Libre is the story of people caught between home and hope.
