On Thanksgiving Day in 1999, a Cuban boy named Elián González was found floating on an inner tube in the Florida Straits. That day set in motion a bitter custody battle between his Cuban father and Miami-based relatives that embodied and fed into simmering tensions between the US and Cuba. With unprecedented access to Elián, his family and key players in the saga, along with a wealth of unedited, raw news coverage, Elián uses one boy’s remarkable journey to plot the path to rapprochement between Cuba and the US.
