They usually perform in a small, poorly attended bar and are often paid with empenadas instead of pesos. But what to do? Leave the country? That's exactly what Julio the bandoneon player, has in mind. He plans to emigrate to Germany with his daughter Paula and his mother Dorothea. Julio sets out to settle his last affairs in Buenos Aires - but he doesn't get away from the city quite so easily.
