Born in 1926 to Korean indentured servant parents in Cuba, Jeronimo joins the Cuban revolution and crosses paths with Fidel Castro and Che Guevara, before turning to his Korean roots and identity. Nearly a century after the first Korean arrival in Cuba, Director Juhn retraces Jeronimo's footsteps to bring you a story about longing, loss, homecoming.

 

There will also be a Q&A session with director Joseph Juhn.
