Havana Kyrie

An aging, down-on-his-luck Italian conductor reluctantly travels back to Havana, Cuba, to oversee several performances of compositions in which he specializes. His concerns seem well-founded when his trip starts off on the wrong foot and he is quickly met by the son he never knew he fathered years ago, but his past eventually adds new purpose and meaning to his present. This is a heart-warming, nostalgic tale of a quirky old man rediscovering the “spice of life” once again.
