Description:
  Craving Cuba is a documentary film about the Cuban-American experience, relative to what's happening with Cuba today. This is a story about identity, family, exile and hope. Zuzy was born in New Jersey to Cuban-exiles and she's never been to Cuba. Although she has always felt very American, there was always a strong pull to the other half of her identity.

Like most in the exiled community, she grew up not being able to go to Cuba. After the December 17th announcement by President Barack Obama, everything changes. Follow her journey to talk to Cuban-Americans around the country, understand herself better and decide whether or not to go to Cuba despite her family's stance against it.

The film shares a powerful story about the American Dream and yearning – for freedom, for country, and for identity across 4 generations on both sides of The Florida Straits.
