Boxing for Cuba
a film based on the book
by Guillermo Vicente Vidal
Say Yes Quickly is marketing the adaptation of Guillermo Vidal's remarkable coming-of-age story to film. Vidal writes about his parents' participation in events that forever altered U.S. Cuban relations when an effort to free children from Fidel Castro's Communist rule sparked Operation Peter Pan. From chance encounters with Fidel Castro and Robert F. Kennedy to life in a dismal Catholic orphanage in Colorado, Vidal perseveres to embrace a redemptive life and--ultimtely--to return to Cuba.
Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper writes, "This is the best book I have read in ages. Guillermo Vidal's is a remarkable life. I was heartbroken at the finish, not from the story, but because I had no more to read. A lyrical and magical book."
