Critically acclaimed internationally, Ticket to Paradise is a powerful drama that depicts the harrowing struggles of neglected teenagers desperately trying to survive on the streets of Havana in a time of social and economic turmoil. There will be a Q&A with director Gerardo Chijona after the film.
