Some would betray him.Others would never forgive him.No one will ever forget him.

In 1959, Fidel Castro's tiny band of rebels toppled a corrupt Cuban dictatorship.Forty years later, Castro remains in power, incredibly surviving a CIA-led invasion, a missile crisis, eight assassination attempts, nine U.S. presidents and the fall of his Soviet allies.

This riveting, hard edged and intensely emotional drama traces the rise of one of history's most intriguing and controversial figures - from a guerilla outpost to the presidential palace.Featuring a stellar cast and tightly woven script, Fidel goes behind the politics to offer up a rare personal portrait of a man driven relentlessly by his convictions, his pride and his passions.

Ultimately, as portrayed by Victor Huggo Martin, the legendary Fidel Castro proves very human, torn by his love for two women and despairing that the idealism, charisma and will power that inspired a revolution could not build the free and prosperous nation he had envisioned.
