In 1980, Fidel Castro sent hundreds of thousands of Cubans from his country on rafts to America. Castro not only sent everyday people to America on boats; he used this as a chance to clear out his crowded jail cells. There was an estimated 25,000 former Cuban inmates that arrived in Florida. Tony Montana is one of the masses of criminals sent by Cuba to America. His only chance to get a green card was to kill Rebenga, a former political leader from Cuba.

Tony's philosophy was: ?First you get the money, then you get the power, and then you get the women.

The unhealthy messages about drugs conveyed in this movie suggest that they are a quick way to make cash but can ultimately be someone's downfall. Tony's drug control led to other problems.
