Summary:
After a lifetime of Latin music performance throughout the world, Azuquita (born Camilo Luis Argumédez, 1945 in Panama) whose Cuban parents were both singers of Son Cubano, traveled back to Cuba in 2001 to visit and perform with his friends Los Jubilados, the Son stars of Santiago. The film shares the everyday life of these tireless retired men and follows them as they record their latest record, play for popular local dances, visit with their families, and improvise with other singers on the streets of Santiago.
