Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
In this politically-colored melodrama, a father (Reinaldo Miravalles) and son develop plans for a farming cooperative in the Sierra Maestra mountains -- then tragedy strikes. The son is killed while fighting in Ethiopia, forcing the father, with ever-increasing determination -- to go it alone. Once he arrives in the mountains to start his project there is some token resistance from local villagers who are not yet won over to a communal way of life. Given their gruff exterior, the job of winning them over will not be easy.
