An engaging and inward-turning, semi-autobiographical film by director Hugo Santiago uses music (mostly tangos) to underscore the angst of life in exile and features a plot that cleverly leaves viewers in the dark about what will happen next. Fabian Cortes (Rodolfo Mederos) is a celebrated master of the tango who lives a good life outside of Spain but still misses his homeland, and in spite of the Franco government and its unjust repression of certain kinds of people, Fabian wants to return home.
