They call themselves El Brujo, the sorcerer and El Indio, the Indio – two ageing musicians who live in a slum in the South of Buenos Aires. They have never had much success with their music and are now putting all their hopes into a new band project: Fango – mud – combines tango and trash rock. But the new musical dawn is overshadowed by drastic events. When an affair between El Brujo's wife and a married man from the neighbourhood is made public, matters escalate into an outbreak of violence that throws the whole quarter into disarray. The film has neo-Western elements and is based in a true story.
