A Tango to Remember: is the romance of a woman… and her husband – who suffers from Alzheimer’s. She takes him to the pier in Jersey City where they first met, and where they so enjoyed dancing, when they were young, and in love. She brings with her the music so familiar, that they both shared, in order for him to find the memories of their past locked up somewhere in the corridors of his mind; awaiting their release.
