According to a newspaper article, more than 25,000 Cubans maintain they are the heirs to an unclaimed multi-million dollar fortune held in the coffers of a British bank and all those with the family name of Castiñeiras will receive a juicy inheritance. All the people with that family name begin proceedings to get their part, but as one can imagine, many obstacles arise along the way.
