Summary
Pablo Elliot Foster Carrión interviews members of his family who left Cuba in 1962, including his grandfather, Pablo Abraham Foster, his father, Pablo Foster, his uncle Rubén Foster, and his aunt Diana-Elena Matsoukas. He learns of their experiences in Cuba, as well how they grew up in the Bronx. His father makes a return visit to Cuba, in 1995 with his wife and daughter, in order to see the landmarks of his childhood, and to visit with his aunt who was left behind. Family members talk about their complex identities as Afro-Cuban immigrants and as Americans
