1952. The mambo craze is sweeping America. Fresh from Havana, Cesar and Nestor Castillo land in New York City, singing their heart-wrenching songs as The Mambo Kings. Antonio Banderas and Armand Assante star as sensitive introvert Nestor and self-styled master of seduction Cesar, two men torn between the vibrant world of New York and the home and loves they have left behind--who for one brief, immortal instant achieve their dream of stardom with a guest appearance on "I Love Lucy."
