Livré à lui-même, il rencontre Mayensi, une jeune fille rousse et belle comme une flamme, dont il tombe éperdument amoureux. Mais le mystère qui entoure cette beauté fascinante menace leur improbable idylle.Chant dédié aux fabuleuses destinées contrariées par le sort, Dieu n´habite pas La Havane est aussi un voyage au pays de tous les paradoxes et de tous les rêves.
