The legendary Havana Boxing Academy is a boarding school that takes 9 year old boys and turns them into the best boxers in the world. Sons Of Cuba follows the stories of three young hopefuls through 8 dramatic months of training and education as they prepare for the biggest event of their lives so far: Cuba's National Boxing Championship for Under-12s.
But during the season, crisis strikes: Fidel Castro is taken ill, and all of Cuba's Olympic boxing champions defect to the USA. As the championship draws closer, the Cuba that the boys have been taught to believe in is at a historic crossroads.
“They are the children of the revolution, and the standard bearers of that same revolution.”—Fidel Castro
