It is aimed equally at dancers as well as all who enjoy dancing, with or without any previous dance experience, or a partner.

Tango movie: Tanguero

Omar, a Tango teacher, is forced, after years, to return to Buenos Aires, a changed city. He meets friends, family and Veronica sharing a difficult challenge. That is how Omar finds himself in Tango.

Is the pursuit of happiness, dreams, regain our lives and above all, an alternative to the vulgarity, the worship of money and the decline of ethics?

The trip traces metaphorically the one made at the end of the 19th century by European immigrants towards South America.
