In the midst of the Cold War, 10 young promising musicians from Mali are sent to Cuba to study music and strengthen cultural links between the two socialist countries. Combining Malian and Afro-Cuban influences, they develop a revolutionary new sound and become the iconic ensemble "Las Maravillas de Mali." New Year's Eve, 2000: French music producer Richard Minier meets a former member of the band in Bamako and decides to get the band back together.
