Synopsis

From director Asori Soto and the executive producers of Jiro Dreams of Sushi comes a unique film about food, society and culture on the island of Cuba. After a decade living in the United States, Soto returns to his homeland of Cuba to search for the missing flavors of his childhood - a journey to discover culinary traditions long thought lost due to the hardship that Cuba survived after the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Soto embarks on a road-trip adventure around the island, visiting regions so remote that you can only arrive by raft, horseback, or swimming. His journey will leave your mouth watering as we rediscover the culinary roots of an exciting Cuba in a time of change.
