“This story intersects a critical election in Florida with the
opportunity for real freedom in Cuba.”
The Senator is mysteriously killed in an automobile accident in the Everglades, with suspicious political goons showing up in strategic places and times. The dead Senator’s Father in Law, a Sugar Baron and veteran of the Bay of Pigs, convinces the Governor to appoint his impressive daughter to fill out the remaining Senate term and become the party candidate for the seat. The determined Father in Law and family were significantly influenced by their Catholic heritage while living in Miami on 8th street, known as “Calle Ocho”.
