Historia de una Batalla

History of a Battle
In 1961, 100,000 young Cubans went into the countryside to end illiteracy. That same year, U.S. trained mercenaries invaded the Bay of Pigs. This film relates these events as two battles: against illiteracy and imperialism, in the same war. The film shows Cuba’s victorious fronts.
