Two men struggle in Cuba. El Medico, a young Cuban doctor and musician, is trying to get a better life for his family. Michel, European music producer, wants fame and fortune. It is a fight between two minds; one sees the music as an authentic expression of Cuban culture and history, the other sees it as a commercial product to be sold by any means necessary. Caught in this clash of views is also Coquita, the young dancer whose dreams are ruined because Michel thinks she is not sexy enough, and El Medico’s Mother who thinks her son is betraying the revolutionary ideals that she suffered for. El Medico realizes that being Michel’s product is not his dream, but he has to decide and choose between serving his duty to the State, as a doctor and fulfilling his mothers dream, or being an artist.
