Winner of Best Film at the 2003 Miami-Brazilian Film Festival, the lighthearted, exuberant romantic comedy Viva Zapato! plunges the audience into the carnival-like atmosphere of Havana. Dolores (Laura Ramos) is a young Cuban dancer who dreams of opening her own beachfront restaurant. Fleeing her down-and-out marriage, Dolores summons her aunt (who resides in Brazil) for financial backing but is enraged to receive a pair of gaudy platform shoes instead of cash. Penniless, Dolores sells the shoes for a few bucks -- only to learn, to her horror, that her aunt buried the money inside of the heel. Suddenly, a frantic, free-for-all search for the shoe begins, plunging Dolores straight into the heart of downtown Havana and head-to-head with an array of bizarre, eccentric, and hilarious locals.
