"Cuba Libre, The Defector" is a behind the headlines look at a Cuban officer thrown into national fame by a single act of courage. He led an aerial attack against Cuba''s former President Batista causing him to flee the country.

Batista was secretly waging war against freedom fighters in the Cuban mountains and needed all available medical personnel. Hospitals surrounding Havana suddenly were lacking medical people. Many hospital patients suffered unattended and some died prematurely due to squandered medical supplies and attention. Among the death toll was the young wife of the Cuban officer.

Swept up in national pride and desire for justice, the young officer found himself in the middle of an insurrection led by an inexperienced idealist named Fidel Castro.

The new regime also held unsavory elements for this justice driven man. Castro had ulterior plans to join forces with the Soviet Union as Communism began to threaten the officer''s homeland. Forced to strike a deal, he sides with the United States. The deal would guarantee the United States to acquire the Soviet''s most prized possession and the officers'' freedom in return.
