Fidel Castro´s guerrilla fighters defeated the ruthless Batista regime in 1959. His triumph drove hundreds of thousands of Cubans of all walks of life to flee the island to everywhere in the world, but especially to the United States. Stolen Dreams is an account of Pablo´s life as he was caught in the vortex of violence by two tyrannical governments. Pablo is torn between his dream of playing baseball abroad and his belief in freedom and justice for all. He and his friend risk their lives attempting to cross the dangerous Straits of Florida seeking freedom. As the Cuban patriot José Martí wrote, “To change master is not to be free… Man loves liberty, even if he does not know that he loves it. He is driven by it and flees from where it does not exist.” Stolen Dreams is a tribute to all who have tried and, after six decades, are still attempting to flee to freedom to anywhere through any means.
