Argentinia: near the Bolivian border, between the city and the pampas, a community prepares for the titular carnival. Rebellious teenager Carba dreams of dancing malambo professionally, the folkloric tap dance of the gauchos. When his father gets out of prison for a weekend, a dangerous journey into criminal abysses begins. Masterfully filmed, the film moves from indie drama to a coming-of-age story to a suspenseful thriller, enriched with a Western setting and sensational dance scenes. The main actor is a five-time Malambo world champion - absolutely worth seeing!
