Photographer Joe Guerriero examines the US trade embargo on Cuba. The embargo is seen by some as an outdated act of reprisal and by others as a necessary reaction to the Cuban government’s policies. In this documentary, Guerriero asks about the reasons for the embargo and tries to identify the opposing interests of the two countries, while also showing its effects on the Cuban people.
