About Fatal Tango
Giulietta Battin has devoted herself to ballet, but when she decides to explore a new style of music–the tango–life as she knows it changes forever. She meets Argentinean tango dancer Damián Alsina and they begin a torrid affair, which quickly turns into a nightmare. Damián sabotages his own performance with a bizarre, improvised choreography. Giulietta follows her lover to South America, where her journey into the world of tango confronts her with the unspeakable horrors of the country’s brutal past. But denial will never silence art, and as Giulietta learns to decipher the true significance of Damián’s dance style, she finds the key to the mystery of her lover´s past and the terrifying truth that connects it with her own.
