Set in Cuba in the 1950s, Pier 5, Havana tells the story of a charismatic smuggler named Tony Montero (Cameron Mitchell) who gets caught up in the political turmoil of the time. He finds himself torn between his love for a beautiful American woman named Julie (Allison Hayes) and his loyalty to the revolutionaries who are fighting to overthrow the corrupt government.

The movie begins with Tony arriving in Havana with a shipment of contraband goods. He is immediately drawn to Julie, who is on vacation with her rich and powerful husband. Despite her husband's wealth and status, Julie is unhappy and disillusioned with her life and is intrigued by Tony's charm and wit. The two begin a passionate affair, but their relationship is threatened when Julie's husband gets wind of what is going on.

Meanwhile, Tony is approached by a group of revolutionaries who want him to use his smuggling connections to help them transport weapons and supplies. At first, Tony is reluctant to get involved, but he is drawn to the cause and the passionate young leader, Rico (Eduardo Noriega). As the revolutionaries plan their attack on the government, Tony must decide where his loyalties lie.
