Strengthening the relationship

Viva Cuba airs on UTV World Movies on September 16 at 8.30 pm. The friendship between two children is threatened by their parents’ differences. Malu is from an upper-class family and her single mother does not want her to play with Jorgito, as she thinks his background is coarse and commonplace.

Jorgito’s mother is a poor socialist who is proud of her family’s social standing. She places similar restrictions on her son.  What neither woman recognises is the immense strength of the bond shared by Malu and Jorgito.

When the children learn that Malu’s mother is planning to leave Cuba, they decide to travel to the other side of the island to find Malu’s father and persuade him against signing the forms that would allow it.
