Theater 5: The Cuban

Newly employed at a nursing home, idealistic student Mina (Ana Golja) becomes intrigued by Luis (Louis Gossett Jr.), an elderly man dismissed by the other staff as unreachable due to his Alzheimer’s. As Mina dedicates herself to his care, Luis begins to recover memories of his life as a Cuban music star, but her efforts soon stir up trouble in her home life. Featuring a lively soundtrack of Cuban jazz, this big-hearted drama is an inspiring tribute to the healing power of music.
