Ezequiel is a psychiatrist at a Buenos Aires hospital. He meets 85-year-old Fermin, a man who curiously expresses himself through the lyrics and titles of old tango songs, and is intrigued by his condition which has not improved for decades.

As he probes the cause, the pair begins to connect. Fermin starts to make revelations about his life, offering clues to his predicament. Through the blossoming friendship, Ezequiel also starts to gain an insight into tango, a cultural expression he had taken for granted, and discovers a vibrant, artistic, and exciting Argentina of the past.

Borrowing the dramatic, colourful and surrealistic qualities of the tango, and featuring a moving portrayal of Fermin by theatre thespian Alterio, the film calls to attention the basic need for connection, passion and forgiveness in life.
