In rural Cuba, farmer/concert promoter/music producer JC (Héctor Noas) is the big fish in his small community, but his years of living beyond his means are starting to catch up with him. When an old friend turns up out of the blue with a questionable moneymaking scheme, JC makes a gamble that could turn things around, or cost him everything he has. Packed with music from legendary Cuban performers (including members of the Buena Vista Social Club), this lively drama paints a charming, celebratory picture of contemporary Cuba.
