After a decades-long struggle, intensified during The War of Independence of 1895, the Cuban liberation army had almost achieved autonomy from Spanish colonial rule. Simon and Samuel are two Cuban kids who will experience the defeat of the Spanish Army in their country and the ensuing US occupation in 1898, which frustrated the national desire for independence, as an intense period of their lives.
