Mi Canaria, Adios:
Goodbye, My Island
When Alfredo and Roberto board the Santa Isabella to find work in Havana in 1884, Roberto is brutally robbed before they can disembark, leaving the couple facing an even harsher future than the one they left behind.
Eager for any kind of work, they are lured into a year's tenure at the plantation of Lars Van Linden, where the little kindness Alfredo receives comes from Lars' overseer, Nathaniel. Jealous that Alfredo is receiving Nathaniel's attention, the cruel and incensed Lars turns on Alfredo and Roberto, humiliating and denigrating them. But the tables are turned when Lars takes things a step too far, and a death sparks revenge.
Set in Spain and Cuba in the late 1880s, Mi Canaria, Adios is a story of love, jealousy and despair amid the search for a better life.
