What is Wasp Network about?

In the early 1990s in Havana, pilot RenĂ© GonzĂĄlez (Édgar RamĂ­rez) left his wife Olga (PenĂ©lope Cruz) and daughter Irma (Carolina Peraza Matamoros) in Cuba to start a new life in the United States. He secretly flew to Miami on a stolen plane (Antonov An-2). GonzĂĄlez soon joins a group of Cuban exiles and Castro opponents, Brothers to the Rescue, who operate from Florida and act against the Cuban regime through military operations and also aim to disintegrate the Cuban tourism industry, they even fly over Cuban airspace. A Cuban secret organization named la Red Avispa, or the "Wasp Network," in English is directed by Gerardo (Gael GarcĂ­a Bernal) HernĂĄndez, also known as Manuel Viramontez (Gael GarcĂ­a Bernal).
The Cuban American National Foundation (CANF) and Brothers to the Rescue not only launch propaganda brochures about Havana, or to lead balseros from Cuba to the Florida shores, but also smuggle drugs and weapons. They also made terrorist activities in Cuba organised by Luis Posada Carriles (Tony Plana). On 1996 two Cessna Skymaster from Brothers to the Rescue were shot down by Cuban MiGs, killing the Caribbean Sea four aviators.
Juan Pablo Roque (Wagner Moura), another Cuban pilot who, by swimming, defected from the socialist country and asks for political asylum at the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, arrives in Miami, settles down and marries Ana (Ana de Armas) Margarita MartĂ­nez (Ana de Armas), but after few years he flies back to Havana making it very clear that he was a mole who had infiltrated anti-Castro associations.
