Adios El Jefe!
Five young boys and a younger sister are orphans who barely escaped Cuba with their lives after their families were brutally murdered by Fidel Castros’ revolutionaries in the 1950s. Ludovico Santana, his best friend Angel Rodriguez, and the others each have their own horror story about how they hid while helplessly watching their parents get raped, tortured, and killed. All five are smuggled out of Cuba by friends and relatives, and they find each other in elementary school in Little Havana, Miami. As they share their stories they form a tight bond and vow to seek vengeance.
As they grow older, they form a conspiracy they call Los Vengadores and start training themselves in the commando techniques they will need to secretly penetrate their stolen homeland and kill El Jefe, as Castro is called in Cuba. They plan to do what the CIA failed to do with over a thousand men in the Bay of Pigs disaster.
But the Vietnam War gets in their way as they reach draft age. They formulate a clever plan to avoid being drafted to fight in Vietnam by volunteering for an Army tactical nuclear missile system deployed in West Germany. The Pershing 1a missile carries a thermonuclear warhead that can take out an entire city – and there are 108 of them deployed in Europe to protect NATO.
But will their deployment with the Pershing 1a sidetrack them from their sworn objective to kill El Jefe?
