A single night can feel very long sometimes, especially if you're on a tiny raft, can't swim and are surrounded by sharks. There are just ninety miles of water between Cuba and Florida. Desperate to leave, plenty of Cubans choose to make this risky trip across the sea. So does Lila’s twin brother Elio. Nowadays his world seems to revolve around his new friend. In a ruined building at the beach, Lila
discovers a couple of wooden boards and two car tyres, the components for a makeshift raft with which her brother and his friend – now wanted by the police – are intending to make their escape. Lila decides she too is ready to take a risk and joins them.
