A very inspirational and powerful story

 "The saga of a Cuban family and the compelling story of a young man who risked his life for five days amid a storm in the murky waters of the Atlantic Ocean surrounded by sharks. A testimony of the strength of the human spirit and a remarkable story about the most magical journey: The journey to Freedom "

Born just months before Castro's Cuban revolution of 1959, Pablo Betancourt hailed from an impoverished Havana slum. Hard work and an indomitable spirit propelled him to win an academic scholarship from the University of Havana which would have led to an enviable career in international trade at the Cuban Foreign Trade Ministry. But freedom's clarion call beckoned Pablo to embark upon a desperate journey at sea to reach the Florida shores. Set sail in a homemade raft supported by two truck tire inner tubes Pablo braved the blistering sun, shark-infested waters, dehydration and a merciless sea, for five days and five harrowing nights. His literal odyssey at sea, and metaphysical journey through the travails of life, is a testament to the power of the human spirit and its relentless pursuit of freedom.
