A portrait of one of Latin America's most famous singers and songwriters: Rubén Blades.

Latin American icon Rubén Blades was at the center of the New York Salsa revolution in the 1970s. His socially charged lyrics and explosive rhythms brought Salsa music to an international audience. Blades won 17 Grammys, acted in Hollywood, earned a law degree from Harvard and even ran for President of his native Panama. He lives in NY, where he granted filmmakers exclusive access to his life at home and on tour. Critically acclaimed director Abner Benaim takes us on a journey through Ruben's 50-year career, revealing that Ruben might still have both musical and political ambitions.
