LET THE DANCE BEGIN is a road movie. A van and three elders in search of a shared secret. And tango. A lot of tango. Dancing as background and motor of the three main characters. Carlos and Margarita were the most famous tango couple of their time. Today, very little remains of that splendor, of that passion that led them to share, stages, travel and life…

Carlos lives in Madrid, enjoying the second opportunity that life has given him and Margarita lives in Buenos Aires immersed in poverty and oblivion. Together with their inseparable friend Pichuquito, the couple starts a journey in search of answers, which will make them face their memories, their fears, but above all their true desires.

“What happens when the past clouds the present and prevents you from seeing the future? How do you live if your true love is just a distant memory?” (Marina Seresesky)
