Convinced that her daughter is making a great mistake by marrying a Cuban man, divorcee Loes heads to Cuba to stop the marriage, only to fall in love herself...
Loes is speechless when her daughter Maartje calls from Cuba informing her that she's going to get married to a Cuban salsa dance instructor. The timing couldn't be worse, as Maartje has finally been accepted for medical school. Loes books the first flight to Havana and is determined to put a stop to this doomed marriage. However during her stay on the beautiful island, Loes' faith in love is restored by her affair with the wildly attractive Juan ... and when she meets ex-husband Alex!
