In this straightforward drama, based on a true story, Tango (Fernan Miras) is a popular young singer in 1960s Buenos Aires. He is from the poorer classes, and is passionately committed to opposing the military government which ruled Argentina at that time. He is involved in student demonstrations and also uses his music as a form of protest. During one protest, he is arrested along with many others, and, while in jail, falls in love with one of his fellow demonstrators, a woman from the upper classes (Cecilia Dopazo). He will not yield on his convictions and will not cooperate with the police in any way. In the end, his courageous obstinacy has tragic consequences.
