KarnawalDuring Carnival, a young Malambo dancer prepares for the most important competition of his life. When his ex-convict father returns, he jeopardizes everything as he drags his son into his criminal world.
Rebellious teenager Carba lives with his mother in northern Argentina near the Bolivian border and dreams of becoming a professional Malambo dancer: the gauchos' folkloric tap-dance. During training for his most important competition, Cabra receives an unexpected visit from his father, El Corto. He is a conman on short leave from jail and takes Cabra and his mother on a mysterious trip along the northern roads. While father and son reconnect, Carba and his mother try to find out why he is taking them. Suddenly, they find themselves in the middle a violent hold-up. On the run and lost in the desert, Cabra struggles to return in time for his dance contest. But will he have to abandon his father to follow his dreams?
