Still image from Castro Or Quit?

Part of the "Life on the Edge" series. In Venezuela, it's the middle class who believe they're on the edge, uncomfortable with President Hugo Chavez's socialist policies. Yurani and Florencio, two young Venezuelan doctors, can't decide if their long-term future is definitely in the country they love. Many of their friends have already emigrated to better-paying jobs overseas. As doctors, they want to care for the poor, and they approve of many of Chavez's initiatives, but they also believe he has gone too far. They face a fundamental choice-to help the government model Venezuela on Castro's Cuba, or to leave before it's too late. Should they stay and fight for what they believe? Accessibility options on the DVD are: (1) expanded description, (2) English subtitles in a black box.
