Set in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the film tells the story of director Mario Suarez's quest to make the ultimate tango film. Lonely after his wife (one of the film's stars) has left him, Mario must find the themes that will hold the film together, while simultaneously permitting his musicians and dancers the freedom of expression that is necessary to satisfy the tango-hungry Argentine audience. Things become complicated when Mario falls in love with Elena, a beautiful and talented young dancer who is the girlfriend of the powerful and dangerous Angelo Larroca, an investor in the picture. And Mario's creative vision is challenged by his investors when he plans a scene that recreates Argentina's dark years of political suppression and "disappearances". Written by

The spirit tries to get out all the senses that invade your soul, your body, your mind through an artistical manifestation. Once after seem this film you probably love the tangos or hate it, but you will discover in each song a magic instant full of color, of meaning and sense. Each step is impulsed by a fresh wind of change and nostalgia. A notable example of love to our ideals and passions, to our own way to be. A remarkable film.
