Laura is a university professor researching the legendary Cuban pimp, Yarini y Alberto Ponce de Leon, whose murder at the hands of French rivals in Havana in the early 1900s made him a folk hero. Delving into the city’s underworld, Laura finds striking parallels between the Havana of today and the past. As her in investigation deepens, she finds herself caught in the middle of a turf war between modern-day Havana pimps.
