SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING BENICIO DEL TORO, PRODUCED BY LEONARDO DICAPRIO Cuba, 1961. Fidel Castro tightens his hold over Cuba after a failed invasion at the Bay of Pigs. Jose Miguel Battle Sr., a former cop and member of the counter-revolutionary group against him, is captured. Miami, 1962. Jose Miguel Battle Sr. is chased to the USA by revolution, and is renamed The Godfather. A 2,500 strong Cuban-American criminal alliance is established. A hero to Cuban-Americans, The Godfather assembled fellow outcasts and enemies of Castro to gain power and influence, using money-laundering, drug traffcking and murder. The Corporation never gave up the dream of killing Castro and reclaiming their homeland. An epic tale of gangsters, drugs and violence, The Corporation reveals how an entire generation of political exiles, refugees, racketeers, corrupt cops, hitmen (and their wives and girlfriends) built a sordid and deadly criminal empire surviving over 40 years.
