In the beginning, Giulietta wants only to get closer to the music, to experience how the rhythm of the tango will move her ballet dancer's body. But then she meets DamiAn, the Argentinean dancer whose energy and power captivate her from the moment she first sees him dance. They embark upon a torrid affair, in which their passion for one another is matched only by their passion for the dance. Yet when DamiAn begins sabotaging his own performance with bizarre, improvised choreography, Giulietta can no longer ignore the signs that something is terribly wrong. When DamiAn commits a shocking crime and flees Berlin, Giulietta gives chase. She follows him to Buenos Aires, plunging deep into the world of Argentinean tango and the unspeakable horrors of the country's brutal past. Only through her lover's emblematic dancing style will she uncover the mystery of DamiAn's unspeakable past and the terrifying truth that connects it with her own.

Professional reviews

"The unusual combination of ballet and tango is no more surprising than the romance between Giulietta Battin and Damian Alsina. Giulietta is on her way to becoming a solo ballerina in Berlin as Damian is taking the city by storm with his unusual--almost forbidden--tango style. Narrator Tanya Eby authentically presents each cast member regardless of his or her class, age, or situation. Giulietta falls in love with Damian and abandons ballet, but soon he becomes remote and mysterious and eventually disappears. She follows him to Argentina, where she learns of the nation's violent history towards its citizens. Eby capably delivers the diverse histories of ballet and tango, but the emphasis is on the characters. Eby keeps listeners on tenterhooks until the heartbreaking conclusion. S.G.B.
