Oscar®-winning director Fernando Trueba (Belle Epoque, Calle 54) and Spain’s legendary illustrator Javier Mariscal celebrate the music and culture of Cuba with an epic story of love, passion, and heartbreak, nominated for a 2012 Academy Award in the Best Animated Feature category.
Cuba, 1948. Chico is a young piano player with big dreams. Rita is a beautiful singer with an extraordinary voice.
