A monkey heads on a dangerous journey from Havana to Miami to fulfill his musical destiny in this animated adventure based on a songbook by Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda. Oscar nominee Kirk De Micco (The Croods) directs.

In Havana, Cuba, Andres Hernandez and his kinkajou Vivo play music together in the plaza. One day after their show, Andres receives a letter from Marta Sandoval, an old friend of his, informing him that she is retiring from her music career. The letter offers a chance to reconnect in Miami, Florida, at the Mambo Cabana and for Andres to finally tell Marta he loves her through a song he wrote just for her. Vivo, happy with their life in Cuba, is reluctant to help Andres.
