Francisco ‘Paquito’ Hechavarría played piano for some of Cuba’s biggest bands, was an in-house performer at the famed Fontainebleau Hotel in the 1960s, and created one of the catchiest hooks in pop music history; Tony López is responsible for countless sculpted works, including the indelible Holocaust Memorial on Miami Beach; twin brothers Nelson and Ronald Currás create large-scale, painted-tile mosaics that grace private homes and public spaces throughout the Caribbean. All originally from Cuba, they brought their love of craft to the U.S. with them. A documentary about life’s unexpected turns and the joy of working with your hands.
