Aging Cuban musicians whose talents had been virtually forgotten following Castro's takeover of Cuba, are brought out of retirement by Ry Cooder, who travelled to Havana in order to bring the musicians together, resulting in triumphant performances of extraordinary music, and resurrecting the musicians' careers.
Unfortunately, all Cuban musicians featured in the movie have passed away. The last one was Ibrahim Ferrer, who died several weeks after performing at the North Sea Jazz Festival in the Netherlands.
