Marciel has lived a difficult life.  However hardened by his past, his eyes still reflect hope and that hope is captured by his love for his daughter.  She is all he has left in this world and will stop at nothing to ensure her a brighter future.  He is torn by his decision to set them on a perilous flight from Cuba aboard an unsteady raft to secure that future.   LEAD
