Just a normal day in Havana. Barbaro, a taxi driver, picks up Maestro Pio Leiva, a star of the Buena Vista Social Club, who is late for a radio show. Barbaro and Pio become friends and decide to put together a band, with some of the best and most acclaimed young Cuban musicians, under the direction of the Maestro. The film accompanies the musicians through their rehearsals and their search for new songs and their own style as a band. The film is also an authentic journey through the real lives of these incredibly talented young musicians.

German director German Kral was born in 1968 in Buenos Aires. He moved to Germany in 1991 to study cinema. His first short, Am Rand, won at the Buenos Aires Bienal de Arte. He has been working as a director since obtaining his degree from the Munich cinema school.
