The Cuban

PG-131hr 49min

A young pre-med student named Mina gets her first job in a nursing home and is put in charge of feeding Luis, a notoriously difficult resident with dementia who has retreated inside his own mind. Mina’s many attempts to get through are futile. That is, until she discovers the music. A poster of Benny More inspires Mina to hum a jazz tune that, to her surprise, ignites a spark inside him. As each day passes the music awakens Luis more and more until the colourful world of his past becomes vibrant and real again. Mina discovers Luis was a famous musician back in Cuba and, as she gets to know him, their unlikely friendship re-ignites her own love of music and changes her life forever.
