The article focuses on the relationship between businessman Miguel Romero and Cuban President Fidel Castro in the U.S. Romero came to the country after Castro came to power. When Romero decided that he could not take it anymore, he put together everything he could sell and contrived to get a ticket to Madrid-New York, because it was during the period when Castro pleased himself by forbidding refugees to fly ninety miles north to Florida. Romero went into the business of making doughnuts and he began to prosper. Castro's officials informed Romero that he was to board forty Cubans on his boat and take them off. None of those would be members of his own family.
