"A look at the life of Cuban author Reinaldo Arenas, from childhood in Cuba to his death in New York City. His writings and homosexuality get him in trouble with Castro's Cuba and he spends two years in prison before leaving for the United States. Victimized by a government that banned his books and jailed him for a crime he didn't commit, [poet] Reinaldo [Arenas] endured unspeakable persecution in a courageous stand against censorship and oppression. Without a country, but not without integrity, he fled to America where he continued to fight for personal expression and produced a stirring body of work."--Container

Episodic look at the life of Cuban poet and novelist, Reinaldo Arenas (1943-1990), from his childhood in Oriente province to his death in New York City. He joins Castro's rebels. By 1964, he is in Havana. He meets the wealthy Pepe, an early lover; a love-hate relationship lasts for years. Openly gay behavior is a way to spite the government. His writing and homosexuality get him into trouble: he spends two years in prison, writing letters for other inmates and smuggling out a novel. He befriends Lázaro Gomes Garriles, with whom he lives stateless and in poverty in Manhattan after leaving Cuba in the Mariel boat-lift. When asked why he writes, he replies cheerfully, "Revenge."

1943. Cuba. Reinaldo vit une enfance pauvre mais libre dans une ferme de la Province d'Oriente. L'enfant devenu adolescent porte ses espoirs en la Révolution Castriste. C'est le temps des premières amours homosexuelles et de la découverte de l'écriture à la Havane. A trente ans, l'écrivain subit la terrible répression de la dictature : la censure, les travaux forcés et l'emprisonnement. Mais Arenas continue d'écrire et s'engage dans une lutte courageuse pour la liberté d'expression qui le contraint à l'exil

La vida de Reinaldo Arenas es mostrada desde su infancia en un ambiente rural y su temprana participación en la Revolución, hasta la persecución que más tarde experimentaría como escritor y homosexual en la Cuba de Castro; desde su salida de Cuba en el éxodo de Mariel Harbor en 1980, hasta su exilio y muerte en los Estados Unidos. Es el retrato de un hombre cuyo afán de libertad desafió la pobreza, la censura, la persecución, el exilio y la muerte
