Cast & Crew
Charlie hears on the car radio that her Uncle Joe, with whom she has a very close relationship, has just hijacked a jet to Cuba. In a series of flashbacks, the development of the hijacking is related. Charlie is living with Norman, an ineffectual, would-be reporter for an underground newspaper, while Joe occasionally stays with Sarah, his fat, neurotic ex-wife, whom he left to join the Navy. Meeting in a park, Joe and Norman mull over their thoughts and memories of Cuba: Norman dreams of the revolutionary Cuban society emerging there, and Joe reminisces about a Cuban prostitute whom he picked up while he was in the Navy. The idea of returning to Cuba thus resulted in Joe's plan for the hijacking.
