This is the story about a veteran group of musicians, reunited by two young artists in order to perform together after more than 20 years of inactivity in the Uruguayan carnival scene. Asides from showing their talent, the movie gives a deeper insight about the musicians personal lives, a life that always spins over the magic of the carnival (an event that only lasts a month) yet inevitably needs to make room for the day-to-day life, an existence far away from the entertainment life and public recognition.
