On Thanks­giv­ing Day in 1999, a six-year-old Cuban boy was found float­ing on a rub­ber ring in the Florida Straits after his mother died try­ing to reach Amer­ica. A heated cus­tody bat­tle en­sued be­tween the lad’s fa­ther in Cuba and his rel­a­tives in the US. The story high­lighted strained re­la­tions be­tween the coun­tries, and this doc­u­men­tary features interviews with the now grown-up boy, Elián González.
