In 2000, the plight of Elián González, a five-year-old Cuban boy plucked from the Florida Straits, sparked a flashpoint for simmering US-Cuban tensions. Featuring candid interviews and extraordinary news archive, Elián presents a gripping account of the boy's remarkable survival. This is a story of family and the challenges of reconciliation; between divided relatives and two nations working towards healing old wounds.
