Havana in 1958 is a place of pleasure for many, but others are not happy under the rule of Dictator Fulgencio Batista. As the revolutionary forces of Fidel Castro and Ernesto 'Che' Guevara prepare to move on the city, Fico Fellove -- owner of the city's classiest music nightclub, El Tropico -- struggles to hold together his family and the love of a woman, not knowing that his club will become more than just a stage for popular entertainment. Observing all is The Writer an ex-patriot American who sees Fico being drawn into events as the revolution changes everything. Though Fico watches a culture vanish and a people transformed, it is his love of Cuban music that keeps his memories alive.
