    • Synopsis
    • El Medico - The Cubaton Story is a musical documentary who centers about a young doctor full fillings his duty to the revolution. But in his hearth he is a musician. When he gets a world wide hit with his song "Chupa Chupa" he gets into conflict with his revolutionary mother and the communist party who wants him to stop with the music and only work for the Revolution. On the other side is a western music producer who wants to promote him as the "sexy doctor". But El Medico rejects them both and goes his own musical way.
