Sugar Time

A daring and bizarre robbery of a sugar refinery payroll in the Queens Plaza subway station goes wrong for the perpetrators when two Cubans planning the same robbery take the money and run.

This fictionalized version of an unsolved Long Island City payroll holdup takes place at the onset of the Cuban Sugar Embargo, when two officers on a ship carrying bulk sugar to a refinery in Long Island City planned their escape from the Castro regime.
