    One Night tells the story of two friends Raúl (Dariel Arrechaga) and Elio (Javier Núñez), and his sister Lila (Anailín de la Rúa).  Raúl, whose mother has AIDS and makes money as a prostitute with the tourists, wants to get out of Cuba where he feels suffocated. His hope is to get to Miami and find the father who abandoned him and his mother. Raúl convinces Elio, who is torn between leaving or staying with his parents and sister, to build a raft and flee with him.  Raul is being hunted for having attacked a tourist after finding his mother having sex with him. This precipitates him and Elio to finalize their plans to flee Cuba for Miami; Lila unexpectedly joins them. The three launch their raft out to sea where they will have to confront sharks, ocean currents and an uncertain future.

    One Night won three important prizes at Tribeca 2012: best actor for Daniel Arrechaga, best cinematography and best picture in the category of new talent.
