‘Cuba Story’ By Vicky Vanna

An inherent passion for salsa motivates Tilia to travel solo to Havana to dance with the world’s finest salseros in Cuba. When she loses travel documents and is locked out of her bank account, she is forced to rely on the aid of a jinetero–a street hustler–named Jorge. Will her immediate attraction and connection to him shatter her expectations of romance, adventure and self-fulfillment? Or, will his sense of freedom forever open her eyes to a vast array of human experiences she never knew existed?
Based on a real life travel adventure.
