Oscar-winning director Fernando Trueba (Belle Epoque) and the
acclaimed Spanish designer Javier Mariscal create a passionate,
animated Cuban love story.
Cuba, 1948. Chico is a young piano player with big dreams.
Rita is a beautiful singer with an extraordinary voice. Music and
romantic desire unites them, but their journey - in the tradition
of the Latin ballad, the bolero - brings heartache and torment.
From Havana to New York, Paris, Hollywood and Las Vegas,
two passionate individuals battle impossible odds to unite in
music and love.
Directed by Fernando Trueba, Javier Mariscal and
Music by Bebo Valdés
