Going back
19 March 2011 | by jaycee1124See all my reviews

I have also been away from the land of my birth for 46 years.

I am about to see Cuba for the first time in just a few weeks.

Looking for anything to help me prepare for my trip I stumbled upon this amazing film, it made me cry and grin from ear to ear.

I was brought to the states when I was just a baby in 1967. His journey was no doubt extremely emotional as will be mine, this film spoke to me deeply and on a very personal level.

It's is full of honest content and at times it was hard for me to watch because it just hit close to home.

As a baseball fan , I encourage all ball fans to watch, but as a human being I recommend this film even more so.
