"East of Havana" is an unflinching look at the Cuban Hip-Hop Scene and a youth movement. The film focuses on the lives and friendship of three young rappers compelled to address their generation's future from the confines of a Cuban ghetto. Soandry, Magyori, and Mikki possess the undeniable talent and charisma of pop icons; creating music whose cross-pollination of early American rap and Latin influences brings self-expression to its sharpest, riskiest, and most triumphant point; but within Cuba's fearless and rebellious underground movement, they are also the defacto leaders, looking for their place in a world filled with limitations.
