What would you do to get to paradise? Eunice, no longer able to tolerate her father’s abuse, flees the small town she calls home. She falls in with the “freakies”, a gang of hard-living street kids, who embrace her, but then the group finds out that the local AIDS facility offers food, clothing, and shelter. Eunice once again finds herself alone as the rest of the group decides they want in - whatever the cost. A highly compelling chronicle of disaffected youth culture in Cuba.
