The plot of the new film Wasp Network plays out in 1990s Cuba under the polarising reign of late President Fidel Castro. Desperate to flee the difficult circumstances created by the government, a group of Cubans hatch a risky plan to to escape to the United States and find refuge amongst an anti-Castro organisation in Miami, Florida.
Once in the States, the group of defectors face challenge after challenge from every side, making them question if their perilous journey was worth all of the trouble. But their slow acclimation to life in Miami is threatened by a secret that endangers the safety of the people that they love the most back home.
Adapted from the pages of the Fernando Morais book The Last Soldiers on the Cold War, Wasp Network is based on the true story, and its modern reimagining is brought to life by a talented cast of actors and collaborators that you've likely seen everywhere.
