In an attempt to set the record straight with respect to the real situation of workers and the history of trade unions in Cuba Jorge Masetti and Claudio Castillo created this documentary about the Cuban trade union movement.
In this documentary the myth of the absence of working unions and the role of the Cuban communists in the trade unions is exposed. From the start of the movement over the communist "deal" with Batista and the final betrayal of the Cuban people by the communist party in its alliance with Castro the story is told.
