Imagine a boy being placed on a plane in Havana bound for Miami and his parents staying behind. Imagine that child arriving not knowing anyone in this new country or its language. And imagine this departure taking place as the revolutionaries in Cuba are establishing a communist government and rapidly restricting travel and personal freedom. These events come to life in “Cuban Courage,” which is based on the true story of the child exodus called Operation Pedro Pan. In that secret plan, over 14,000 children were flown without their parents from Havana to Miami between December 1960 and October 1962.
