Synopsis : Brother and sister Davie and Diana return to the country of their birth, Argentina, for the first time in their adult lives. They are mesmerized by a nocturnal world of tango clubs. Diana tells Davie one of her reasons for planning their trip - she thinks Davie is adopted and wants to find out for sure. Powerful questions about his identity that arise for Davie send him on a bender that destroys a burgeoning relationship with tango dancer, Josefina. Returning to Toronto, Davie confront his parents. In Buenos Aires, they learns the identity of his mother - a unionist killed by the dictatorship. The parents who brought Davie and Diana up are preparing to leave the country but are intercepted.
