Experiencing Interruptions?


A story of Korean descendants in Havana, Cuba who learn about, succeed values and identity from their grandparents and dream of Korea. In 1905, Korea was going through political and social turbulence and poverty and approximately a thousand of Korean ancestors migrated to the Caribbean and Latin America with the Mexican dream under the fraudulent labor contract. Unfortunately, the majority of the migrants were forced to farm slavery and ended up being left in exotic lands after their legal documents were destroyed. History remains and conveys painful facts, however, young descendants today talk about hopes and try to find own ways to be proud daughters and sons from Korea.

*'Hijos' means 'daughters and sons' in Spanish.
