The Cuban Dream

A feature length documentary produced in Cuba.

In 2012 Luke Salas, a former professional player in the Texas Rangers organization, set out to become the first Cuban-American to play in Cuba’s system of baseball since 1961.  Through Luke’s education at Pepperdine University’s School of Public Policy, Luke recognized that while pursuing his love for the game in Cuba, baseball could be used as a way to not only unite his family, but also the people of the USA and Cuba.

Luke’s journey to play baseball in Cuba becomes a testimony of how powerful people to people connection can be, while showing the reality and limitations of Cuba through the lens of baseball.
