Nan Spencer is on a boat bound for Havana which runs aground. The man sent to rescue her is engaged and she doesn't understand his disinterest. Gambler is interested, to the annoyance of his girlfriend.
Lelita, a rich young lady, is courted by Paulo, her cousin, but she has reason to believe he is also having na affair with Lelita's sister, which causes jealousy trouble, until all becomes clear and true love prevails.
This is not just a fine piece of brazilian pop music of the times registered in film. It's cabaret meets brazilian carnival. It's also very into modernism, which translates as great sets, and dialogues and action that verge on the complete absurd, inbetween songs, as you follow two songwriters that drink and gamble a little too much for their own good. Great comedy!
