Acclaimed musician, producer and composer Gustavo Santaolalla (winner of 2 Academy Awards®) leads us on a journey to bring together these unique "maestros." Reconstructing historical arrangements and recording unpublished material for the first time, this collaboration culminates with a grand performance of Tango music and dance at Buenos Aires' famous Colon Theatre.

The film is a lyrical, reverent exploration of tango’s imprint on the attitudes and emotions of Argentinians. The musicians and singers talk with always fond, sometimes sorrow-tinged, nostalgia of the role of the old café, the heaving clubs, las minas (the girls), the football matches, the races, the dance and the daily importance of the music in their long lives. “You can’t separate tango from life,” says guitarist Aníbal Arias, one of the many legends profiled in the film.
