Daniel was awarded with a financial contribution to help continue his work as a fervent teacher to those who cannot afford to buy a bandonéon, as their instrument – so the film’s  narration tells us in stunning visual and musical scenes – has become scarce in the country that created the melancholic heart of the tango after the instrument had been imported from Europe in the early 20th century.
