After years of drought, a mystic potato sprouts in the remote springs of the Aiatak River. Soon, everything will be ready for the great ritual of Tango. For the people, this is the beginning of a new era. Inspired by the short story "A Hunger Artist" by Franz Kafka, "Tango" is a plunge into human nature and its contradictions.
