This 2004 documentary follows the case of the Cuban Five – five men from Cuba who have been unjustly imprisoned in the U.S. for doing nothing more than preventing terrorism against the Cuban people. They were arrested by the FBI in 1998 and have been in prison ever since. They were sentenced in Miami federal court to four life terms and 75 years collectively; the case is currently on appeal. "Mission Against Terror" shows historical footage of terrorism against Cuba and provides a moving depiction of the case of the Cuban Five. It features interviews with Cuban National Assembly president Ricardo Alarcón, former CIA agent Philip Agee, attorney Leonard Weinglass, Andrés Gómez, a Cuban activist in Miami, and family members of the Five.

The film will be followed by an open discussion led by the film’s co-director, Bernie Dwyer of Radio Havana Cuba. Dwyer is an Irishwoman who lives and works in Havana as a journalist. She was previously a lecturer in Women's Studies at University College in Dublin. "Mission Against Terror" is her fourth documentary film to be co-produced with Cuban Television’s Roberto Ruiz Rebo.
