Recreating the exuberance of 1940’s Havana, this beautifully animated love story from renowned artist Javier Mariscal and Oscar winner Fernando Trueba (Belle Epoque) is imbued with lyrical sensuality and passion, underscored by a sultry original soundtrack from legendary Cuban musician Bebo Valdés, featuring Thelonious Monk, Cole Porter, Dizzy Gillespie Charlie Parker and Chucho Valdés.
