As Havana wakes up to another day, five Cuban men are serving their time in prisons scattered throughout the United States. Their crime? Protecting their country and people against terrorism. Arrested on September 12th, 1998 and subjected to a trial, which US civil rights lawyer, Leonard Weinglass, calls a “violation” from start to finish, the Cuban five were locked away for a total of three life sentences plus 68 years. There are very few cases that are political by their nature. This was one. “Mission Against Terror” charts Cuba's 45 year struggle against terrorism and the five men's fight to win justice.
