Featuring an extraordinarily moving performance from Héctor Alterio and dazzling dance numbers, “Tango Glories (Fermin)” centers on psychiatrist Ezequiel Kaufman (Gaston Pauls, “Nine Queens”), who has been offered a four-year residency at a prestigious clinic. But first, he must present a clinical case study and he finds the perfect one in 85-year-old Fermin Turdera (Alterio), who expresses himself through the lyrics and titles of tango songs. As Ezequiel digs deep into the causes of this unique phenomenon, he is reintroduced by Fermin to a cultural expression he took for granted and discovers that tango is more than just dance and music…it is a way of life, with a philosophy of its own.
