Having started a residency at a Buenos Aires hospital, Jewish psychiatrist Ezequiel is especially perplexed by the behaviour of one of his patients, Fermin, who communicates only by quoting lyrics and titles of tango songs. Suspecting that Fermin has been misdiagnosed for decades, Ezequiel starts researching his history, uncovering some dark secrets from both his patient’s and his country’s pasts. His research would also make him fall in love – with tango, and with Eva, a tango instructor and Fermin’s granddaughter. Glories of Tango is as delightful and intense as its thrilling dance scenes.
