Against forbidding seas and the beautiful Cuban landscape, an ancient artifact draws an American search team into a web of history and intrigue.

Cuba for Americans was the earliest of our exotic vacationlands; vibrant and seductive – just a stone’s throw from U.S. doors. While offering visitors a unique and rich culture, the people of Cuba lived through eras of colonialism, imperialism and despotism. Nonetheless, today finds the gentle people of Cuba forged into a mettle of graceful resilience. In its 21st century reality, Cuba teeters between a memory and a promise. This story brings us into the minds and hearts of people experiencing change.

Four Americans cross dangerous seas and into intricate corners of the Cuban Republic. They search for something lost, an icon —- a Masque that will bring honor back to a people. Revenge distorts the objective along the unfolding scenic views as human encounters reveal complex realities. ~~~ The story sparkles with history, revisionism, suspense and love. Most of all, it is a discovery of old and new, and the best in us — that man may endure.
