Finding it more and more difficult to live in the economic times of Cuba following the fall of the Soviet Union, Uli learns that the Revolutionaries are closer than expected -importing drugs to support the failing economy. These discoveries catapult him into a journey involving work camps, murder, and a voyage at sea.
