In the film, Trueba will offer a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the music and lives of some of the greatest Latin musicians of the era. The project aims to capture the beat of Latino musicians including Tito Puente, D’Rivera, Chucho and Bebe Valdes, Gato Barbieri, Israel “Cachoa” Lopez, Chico O’Farrill, Michael Camilo and Jerry Gonzalez & Fort Apache.
