On a Sunday afternoon, a widow waits for her two daughters and younger brother to join her for a family dinner. Under the quiet surface there are tensions and conflicts between the family members but everyone is used to the predictable situations they have to face each day. An unexpected guest drops in and the revelry that she brings with her throws the family off balance. What does the visit of this stranger mean to the family and herself?

About the Title

Milonga is not a fixed location or a stationary being. It is made by people, music and the interaction between them. Family is the same, only that in this case love is the music. Milonga is something we live. Family is something we make.
