A graphic novel by Javier Mariscal and Fernando Trueba adapted from their film 'Chico & Rita'
Cuba, 1948. Chico is a young piano player with big dreams. Rita is a beautiful singer with an extraordinary voice. Music and romantic desire unite them, but their journey – in the tradition of the Latin ballad, the bolero – brings heartache and torment. From Havana to New York, Paris, Hollywood and Las Vegas, two passionate individuals battle impossible odds to unite in music and love.
Inspired by the true story of Grammy Award-winning Cuban pianist and band leader Bebo Valdes.
