A small band of Canadian VIP's: Joey Smallwood, the colorful ex-premier of Newfoundland, and Geoff Stirling, a media mogul, fly to Cuba as guests of the Government. They claim that they are there in order to score a historic interview with the reclusive Fidel Castro, hoping to act as go betweens with the US, and thus help lift the US Embargo on Cuba.

Director Rubbo takes his personal approach one step further in that he appears on camera this time, acting as a referee as his two companions spar over what they think of socialist Cuba. Joey Smallwood tends to admire everything he's shown on the guided tours, while Geoff Stirling remains deeply cynical, un-seduced by the society of Fidel.
