When Castro, the newly elected leader of Cuba calls for volunteers to go into the jungle and teach the poor to read and write, Lora does not hesitate. At 13 her parents do not want her to go. Through her growing up, we see the background of the revolution which kicked the USA out of Cuba and placed Castro as leader.
