PLOT : Brother and sister Davie and Diana are drawn back to their birth country of Argentina, immersing themselves in the mesmerizing world of nocturnal tango clubs. However, this might not just be a nostalgic trip for the duo but an exploration of their original roots, as Diana confesses that Davie might have been adopted. The news shocks Davie and propels him into a relentless quest for answers about his identity, while the seductive allure of the tango becomes a haunting reminder of the enigma that lies within him. Amidst his confusion and disorientation, Davie must confront his deepest fears and embrace the painful truth that lies at the heart of his existence, even if it means sacrificing his connection with the people around him and redefining his understanding of belonging.
