Katey Miller is a teenager in 1958 whose life has undergone a startling change. Because of her father's job, her family has relocated to Cuba, and it is a painful transition for the girl who left many friends and excellent grades behind her. It's not as easy for her to focus on her schoolwork here where everything feels so alien. Still, there are good things about living in Cuba, particularly her budding friendship with a waiter named Javier. He is a talented dancer, and although his friendship with her cost him his job, she plans to make it up to him by helping him win a dance contest. As they meet in secret to prepare for it, they grow closer and closer, and romance blossoms.
