Ten recent arrivals to Canada, all Cubans in their early to mid-twenties, spend their days learning English and their nights playing and rehearsing their own blend of Cuban salsa music at various downtown clubs. Director Kyle Stone follows the group of nine women and their drummer Gilberto, capturing their constant discussions about the political situation at home and the problems of citizen engagement in both communist Cuba and democratic Canada. Life Lessons at the Lula Lounge is about music, learning, dreaming and above all, the continual quest to improve our lives and the countries we live in.
