Freedom is like flying; you can go in any direction, look around and decide where you want to land. Freedom gives people a choice and brings self-satisfaction and happiness. Are people happy in the countries where their freedom is limited?
Cuba is one of the few smaller territories that resist the influence of the United States. Poverty-stricken, it is very difficult for Cubans to earn a living. Boxers and Ballerinas depicts the lives of four young athletes-a young boxer and a young dancer in Havana, Cuba and a boxer and dancer living in Miami, Florida-each trying to achieve his/her goals in life.
Mike Cahill and Brit Marling's incredible story of these young professionals vividly demonstrates the controversy of human emotions when people are forced to make a choice of leaving their country for greater possibilities or staying and succeeding in the more difficult conditions in which they live. It is a story of what freedom means for a person in any country and evaluates the human right to have a nationality.
