This is the story of Ayala, a young ingénue from the tobacco growing countryside who dreams of being a professional dancer. Ayala is young beautiful and talented, and dreams of a life far from the monotony of the tobacco growing valley of Vinales. Ayala leaves her family, to follow her destiny in the capital Havana, the Pearl of the Caribbean. She tries an audition for the most celebrated dance company, in the club “Soy de Cuba”. In the heyday of Havana’s golden age, Soy de Cuba was the heartbeat of the city, where all the legends of Cuban music played, Celia Cruz, the Queen of Salsa, Perez Prado, the King of Mambo, and where Enrique Jorrin created the Cha Cha Cha.
However, the only job available for Ayala is working at the bar, from where she can observe the rehearsals of the dance company by day and the elegance of the shows at night. Through her eyes, the audience view a glimpse of the secret backstage life, the treacheries and jealousies, and conflicts within a Cuban dance company.
Lola is the diva of the company; her lover is Mario the choreographer. When Mario discovers the talent that Ayala has, dancing during a party in the street of his neighborhood, a relationship begins that provokes a compelling conflict, and a passionate drama within the company.
