Jazz saxophonist J. Plunky Branch breaks through barriers and brings light to the Afro-Cuban music scene in his groundbreaking documentary. Branch traveled to Havana, Guantanamo and Santiago de Cuba and recorded collaborations between local musicians and noted American jazz musicians Craig Harris, Hamiet Bluiett and David Murray. In doing so, he discovered music's powerful influence despite political and social barriers.
