In their dazzling first on-screen pairing, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony bring to life this riveting tale of romance and redemption based on the true story of salsa legend Hector Lavoe and the woman who kept him from falling over the edge.
It's the 1970s and the Salsa revolution is in full swing. Hector Lavoe (Anthony) is the singer, El Cantante, whose voice can move millions and whose passion moves one woman, his wife Puchi (Lopez). But when the spotlight beings Lavoe's personal demons and addictions to light, it will take the incredible devotion of his wife to put him on the path to becoming the legend he was born to be.
