An idyllic vacation villa is ruffled by elements from a more ruthless world. Claudio, an Argentine physician, is the life of the group, even giving tango lessons after the evening meal. Silvia, an American almost old enough to be his mother, develops a fast rapport with the charismatic Claudio, so much so that her husband Tony, the proprietor, suspects an unlikely attraction is in the making. But Claudio is on a mission. He has tracked the retired army officer responsible for the disappearance of his mother during Argentina's "dirty war" twenty years before. Col. Leone is surrounded by bodyguards in a remote Tuscan town. Claudio must get to him and make him confront his past. But there is more at stake. Those who orchestrated the disappearances do not want Leone ever to reveal what he knows. They send their own agents to hunt the hunter Claudio. Silvia and Tony are drawn into the cauldron. Revenge and redemption spin through a final tango as the showdown unfolds.
