OUR LAST TANGO

María Nieves and Juan Carlos Copes are the best-known couple in tango's history and shaped this dance like no other. They danced passionately, loved and hated each other for almost 50 years, until one day they separated. And that left a huge gap in the tango scene...

Now, almost at the end of their lives, they talk about their story for the first time.
