Sin La Habana is about power, prophecy, and destiny as seen through the eyes of three people. Leonardo (Acosta Gonzalez), a ballet dancer, and Sara (O’Farrill), an ambitious lawyer, are young black Cubans desperate to leave their country. They realize that their ticket off the island is for Leonardo to seduce one of the foreign students at the salsa school where he teaches. When he meets Nasim (Yaghoubi), a Canadian-Iranian divorcée, and moves to Montreal, the international love triangle disintegrates into a situation where nobody gets what they wanted, but everyone ends up closer to their true destiny.


Leonardo est danseur de ballet et Sara est avocate. Ils sont amoureux, jeunes, beaux et ambitieux, et ils veulent désespérément quitter Cuba. Ils ont un plan: Leonardo devra séduire une femme étrangère afin de l’épouser pour lui permettre d’immigrer. Il fera alors la rencontre de Nasim, une Canadienne d’origine iranienne qui fuit un passé oppressant et tente de s’amuser pour la toute première fois. De la torpeur chaotique de Cuba aux rigueurs de l’hiver canadien, ces personnages complexes tentent d’atteindre leurs rêves d’intimité, de bonheur et d’ascension sociale à travers un triangle amoureux où la passion, l’argent et le pouvoir colorent leurs destins.
