Cuba, 1948. Chico is a young piano player with big dreams. Rita is a beautiful singer with an extraordinary voice. Music and desire unite them as they chase their ambitions and each other from Havana to New York and Hollywood to Paris, in an epic story of love and heartbreak spanning six decades.
Oscar-winning director Fernando Trueba (Belle Epoque) and Spain’s renowned designer and illustrator Javier Mariscal celebrate their passion for the people and culture of Cuba in a red-hot musical love story set against the color and bustle of 1940’s Havana and jazz-era New York.
