Garcia's directorial debut is a 20-year, overextended labor of love. Set in 1958 Havana, the old-fashioned saga focuses on the three Fellove brothers and their reactions to the Batista dictatorship and Castro's revolution. Fico (Garcia), the eldest, is an apolitical nightclub owner who wants life to go on as it always has, while his two younger brothers, Luis (Carbonell) and Rico (Murciano), believe in violent change. Politics not only divides the family but soon shatters their comfortable existence, leading Fico into exile from his beloved home (as it did for Garcia's own family). The numerous musical interludes are only in Spanish.
