Papa's Tango

Director: Michiel van Jaarsveld.
Hannah’s parents are divorced. Her father is from Argentina and her mother is Dutch. Hannah is a dreamer. She loves to dance and adores her father.

After the divorce of her parents Hannah’s mother started a relationship with a new man. He lives with them now. Hannah gets along with him, yet she misses her father a lot. By listening to her father’s tango music she can still dance with him in her mind.
