Summary:
For Love or Country is a biopic about Cuban trumpeter Arturo Sandoval. It explores his life as an adult, when he becomes increasingly dissatisfied with Fidel Castro's constraints on his music and the politics of a "Revolution" that declares his real musical love, American jazz, illegal. The film does not concern itself with every nuance of Cuban politics, but is about Sandoval's struggles to remain true to his country, which he loves with a passion, while balancing it with his love for music, which he cannot give up despite countless roadblocks.
General Note:
Originally produced as a television motion picture in 2000.
