Shot on location in Havana, Cuba, "La Milagrosa" is the work of Sam Morrill '08, current Digital Media Assistant for the Program in Film and Media Culture.

Osvaldo Rios' shooting gallery is much like the others in Havana, Cuba. For a nominal fee locals can go there to take aim at soda cans and paper targets with air rifles. Unlike the others, though, Osvaldo allows his patrons to bring photographs of their ex-lovers, bosses and other enemies to riddle with pellets for an extra five pesos. After pocketing a photograph that one of his clients has left behind, Osvaldo finds himself entangled in a series of coincidences that force him to choose between the familiarity of his life in Havana and an exotic alternative that may lead him to dangerous and irreversible consequences.
