In the summer of 1959, as Castro clamps down on Cuba and its first wave of exiles flees to the States to wait out what they hope to be his short-lived reign, Emma Gant, fresh out of college, begins her career as a reporter.

She also becomes friends with a man, a gambling racketeer, that belongs to a anti-Castro training brigade who poses a threat to Paul and a former madam.
