The tango was out of fashion in Argentina, once its natural home. Indeed, director Entel didn't particularly like the genre until he heard a band playing in the street: Orquesta Tipica Fernandez Fierro, 'a scraggly outfit of pierced, dreadlocked players who wield their accordions and violins with punk abandon.' We follow the band on a European tour, living cheaply but cheerfully, sustaining their political activism as well as their music, in this word-of-mouth popular movie.
