The thrilling espionage story of five Cuban agents who took on false identities and travelled to Miami. Alone and unarmed, the agents’ goal was simply to gather information – creating an early-warning system for future terrorist attacks or even the full-blown US military invasion which they feared was always on the horizon. This film peers into a secret espionage world of five Cuban spies, heading to the States alone. 

Using never-before-seen footage from the Cuban Film Institute’s archive and first-hand testimony from the people at the heart of this story, Castro’s Spies gives a rare glimpse into the shadowy world of a spy – where the stakes are life and death.
