June 2, 1991 | Christine Bell, Bell is the author of "Saint" and "The Perez Family."
All Marta de la Pena needs is wings to fly. She is already half-angel, with eyes that see into men's souls. She is a modern-day Joan of Arc, with a plan, if not to liberate Cuba, at least to let Fidel Castro know that there still are people willing to fight for their lost island. Marta is the central force unifying John Sayles' collection of Cuban dreamers, "Los Gusanos"--the worms, as Castro branded those who fled his revolution. The time is 1981, the place Miami.
