Cuban born Sonia is sent to the United States by her parents to elude the rising intensity of the Communist revolution in Cuba in the early 1960's.  She never sees her parents again.  Years later, she marries a Jewish man, they settle in the Midwest, bring up two children, and attempt to blend their customs from their separate backgrounds.

When Sonia learns of her son's decision to leave college, enlist in the military and fight against terror in Afghanistan in the weeks following 9/11, memories of her own childhood overwhelm her. She struggles to reconcile being forced as a young girl to leave Cuba at the dawn of Fidel Castro's rule with her own responsibilities as a mother facing uncertainty. Sonia must find a way to come to terms with her past, her lost parents, her own children and her adopted country—or risk losing everything that she loves. Set between post-revolutionary Cuba and post-9/11 America, Sonia Flew telescopes the large cultural and political forces of a historic moment to examine their impact on the intimate lives of ordinary men and women.
