From 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, Asori 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 all 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 go from the middle of nowhere to the cities in order to rediscover the culinary roots of an exciting Cuba in a time of change.

“If it can do for Cuban food what Jiro did for sushi, the island could have a cult of hungry Americans arriving as soon as they’re legally allowed.” -FOOD & WINE
“A gorgeous love letter to the people and country of Cuba…a real triumph overall.” -FILM THREAT
“A culinary adventure that would have made Anthony Bourdain blush.” -REMEZCLA
