Sonia's parents, fearful of the new government, sent their only daughter from Cuba to the United State in 1961. Set in Minneapolis and Havana, a story of family unfolds across the generations as Sonia — now raising two children with her Jewish husband — struggles to come to terms with her past, her lost parents, her own children, and her adopted country. This Calderwood-commissioned play by local playwright and actress Melinda Lopez received its first reading at the 2004 Breaking Ground Festival.
