Elián  

Synopsis

Executive produced by Academy Award® winner Alex Gibney, this is the remarkable story of Elián González, a five-year-old Cuban boy plucked from the Florida Straits, and how the fight for his future changed the course of US–Cuban relations.

Featuring powerful personal testimony, candid interviews and extraordinary news archive, this Fine Point Films & Jigsaw Production presents a gripping account of Elián’s remarkable survival after his mother and ten others perished at sea, the custody battle between the boy’s Cuban father and Miami-based relatives, and the momentous political fight that came to surround it.

Offering a never-before-seen intimate portrait of Elián today, this is a story of family and the challenges of reconciliation, of two nations working towards healing old wounds and of Elián and his father, and the possibility that, seventeen years on, this once-close family might finally make peace.
