Synopsis

In the Mexican city of Veracruz, failed trade unionist Silverio is seen by his friends as a figure of fun whose earnest yet ultimately senseless public political speeches have made him a local laughing stock. Disheartened by his life and egged on by his drinking buddies, Silverio sets sail for Florida on a home-made raft in search of the American Dream. His plan to claim asylum in the US, under the guise of a Cuban national fleeing Castro’s regime, backfires when a storm blows him off course.
