Synopsis: The Cuban blogger Yoani Sánchez built her 1st computer on her own, created a blog without home Internet access and today she has millions of monthly views. Writing about her daily life in Cuba and criticizing socialism, Yoani became well known and won international prizes.

Because of her polemic posts, some say she is a CIA agent, others say she is a fighter for freedom of speech. After many years trying to obtain a permission to fly put of her country, the antagonist of the Castro brothers came to Brazil, where she ran into a lot of trouble.
