This one-hour documentary follows architectural enthusiast, raconteur and television host Geoffrey Baer as he takes his first trip to Havana, Cuba, to explore why this island nation still holds such fascination for Americans, even after a half-century embargo.

On the streets of Havana, Geoffrey Baer meets dancers, musicians, historians and storytellers who lead him deeper into Cuban culture as he introduces American audiences to this island nation with the same wit, passion and wide-eyed curiosity that has attracted fans across America to his previous 10 THAT CHANGED AMERICA TV specials.
