Named after the widow of the late Ramon Arechabala, whose family originally founded an iconic rum brand, AMPARO takes its audience back to pre-revolutionary Cuba and tells the story of the confiscation of their company by the communist government and their exile to the U.S. Paying homage to a painful past, AMPARO is a historic recollection of the family’s Cuban heritage, their legacy and how they have successfully reclaimed what was rightfully theirs.
