Havana, December 1990. René González, a Cuban airline pilot, steals a plane and escapes the country, leaving behind his beloved wife and daughter. He begins a new life in Miami, soon joined by other Cuban dissidents, all working towards the destabilisation of the Castro regime. Based on a true story.

Born in Paris in 1955, Olivier Assayas has written and directed more than twenty films. After studying art and literature, he made short films, wrote screenplays (notably for André Téchiné) and numerous theoretical and critical articles for the Cahiers du Cinéma. His films brought him international recognition, starting with his debut in 1986 at the Venice Festival with Désordre (Disorder). Olivier Assayas has also published several books on cinema or on his own career. The most recent, Un voyage - Marseille-Rio 1941, combines his father's wartime writings with long unpublished photographs by Germaine Krull: it was exhibited at the prestigious Rencontres de la Photographie d'Arles in the summer of 2019.
