Havana, 1948. Chico, a pianist (his music by legendary Bebo Valdés) and Rita, a sensual vocalist, fall in love and chase fame from the Caribbean to bebop New York, smoky Paris, and high-rolling Las Vegas. Big American cars represent big American success in this Oscar-nominated animation.
“A pure delight, a keenly affecting, visually ravishing tale.” (Washington Post)
