"To do historical justice, is to do justice to these men who were forgotten in those prisons, who were mistreated, who were abused by Castroism and the world has turned its back on them, in silence, no one was listening".

Plantados is a movie that depicts the horrors of political imprisonment in Cuba and brings justice to those Cubans who do not sympathize with the Castro regime for which they are besieged and condemned. The film recounts the most horrible tortures that these men preferred to suffer before negotiating with the Castro regime.

Plantados is directed by the well-known director Lilo Vilaplana, and the film has two stories as a plot line: a current one in Miami where an elderly political prisoner lives and discovers a henchman who tortures him in prison; and he begins to see all the abuses that were committed in those prisons from that perspective.

CUBAN POLITICAL PRISINERS
PLANTADOS IS THE STORY OF CUBAN POLITICAL PRISONERS, THOSE WHO AT THE BEGINNING OF THE CASTRO DICTATORSHIP REFUSED A RE-EDUCATION PLAN IN EXCHANGE FOR A SENTENCE REDUCTION.
"IT IS A FICTIONAL STORY OF THE PLANTADOS (THE IMMOVABLE ONES). IT IS NOT THE LIFE OF ANY OF THEM AND AT THE SAME TIME THE LIFE OF ALL OF THEM," SAID VILAPLANA.
