A young, impoverished Cuban couple dreams of wealth and success. A Canadian Iranian-Jewish divorcée yearns for personal freedom. These three lives converge in Sin La Habana, a film in which power, money, creativity, and destiny intertwine into a passionate love triangle, with a hint of magic, where cultures clash in a torrid dance. Leo, a talented ballet dancer, and Sara, a lawyer, yearn for a better life together by leaving Cuba; one sure way is for him to romance a hapless tourist. This plan works all too well, as the lonely Nasim quickly falls for Leo’s charm, and soon makes his dreams come true by inviting him to Montreal. A visual feast featuring stunning cinematography that captures the sultry heat and colors of Cuba in sun-drenched scenes and pulsing rhythms, Sin La Habana is a poetic and sensitive portrayal of dreams, ambition, and the search for fulfillment.
