Vivo: the plot of the exciting animated adventure

Vivo sees as its protagonist an original cercoletto (a small inhabitant of the tropical forests), who spends his days playing music in a lively square in Havana together with his beloved owner Andrés. Although they do not speak the same language, Vivo and Andrés are a perfect duo thanks to the passion for music that unites them. But a tragedy strikes them shortly after the arrival of an invitation from the famous Marta Sandoval to attend her farewell concert to be held in Miami, hoping to see her old partner again. It will be up to Vivo to deliver the message that Andrés has always kept secret: a love letter to Marta, written long ago in the form of a song. To be able to reach Miami, Vivo will have to accept the help of Gabi, an energetic girl with a rhythm of her own.

Vivo is an exciting story about how to show courage, about the ability to find a family in unlikely friends and how music can open your mind to new worlds.
