“ Inspired by the true story of Grammy Award-winning Cuban pianist and band leader Bebo Valdes. ”

Cuba, 1948. Chico is a young piano player with big dreams. Rita is a beautiful singer with an extraordinary voice. Music and romantic desire unite them, but their journey 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. 


A work of art in its own right... I defy anyone to reach the end of it without a tear in their eye.
