Like her mother before her, beautiful Sissy wants to be a dancer at the Tropicana, Havana's famous cabaret. But her truck driving father, Candido, forbids her to do so because of his ongoing grudge against Armando, his former rival and choreographer at the nightclub. When Candido and his friend Promedio accidentally run Sergito over, Promedio sees the star-shaped mole on the boy's buttock, identical to Candido's. Much to Sissy's delight and to Promedio's dismay for fear of incest, Candido takes the boy home, unaware that Sergito is his son and therefore Sissy's brother. Promedio's worries are confirmed when the two youngsters fall madly in love.Written by
It is unbelievable how a director (Chijona) with a previous good film and a writer (Aguero) with a respectable career can come up with a non-sensical story such as this. The humor is crass and unfunny, the situations do not allow for suspension of disbelief and nothing sustains the plot of this unbearable film. To top it off, acting is of the worse quality. I do not know who does a worse job in her respective roles, if Thais Valdes or Daisy Granados. The Cuban cinema is plagued with bad movies, but this one is at the top of the infamous list.
