At eighty-two-years-old, Carrete wants to fulfill a dream before the end of his dancing career: to perform in a great theater in New York. Despite his tireless enthusiasm, his health tells him that his days as a flamenco master are coming to an end. His art saved him from starvation and the cinemas sheltered him from the cold during the Spanish post-war period. And it was on the big screen where he met his admired Fred Astaire, who settled in his imagination as a fantasy to aspire to.

And while waiting for his long-awaited American adventure, Carrete looks back on his past. Joaquín, one of his sons, who was a talented guitarist and whose expectations were cut short by prison, wants to play again.

Enjoy an uplifting performance by Robert Pesich preceding the March 17th screening. Go to Creativity Experiences Artist Lineup for details.
