Presented by [Teatro de la Luna] (http://teatrodelaluna.org/home.htm) and directed by Mario Marcel, the comedy follows a pair of lovers and tango dancers from Argentina who must escape their country after committing a painful act. On their journey, the two pour their energy into securing musical accompaniment and find it in an unlikely third wheel, a guitarist from Lebanon.
