    • Synopsis
    • Nelly Omar, the last Tango Golden Age bearer, started on the radio in the ‘30s and performed on all scenarios in Argentina.

      She met Carlos Gardel and won Homero Manzi’s heart. She became Eva Perón’s friend and they together worked on radio dramas and flew light aircrafts while Evita was single. Later, this friendship would cost her more than ten years of censorship.

      Nelly was born in 1911 and died in 2013. At the age of 100 she performed for an overcrowded stadium, and her last wish was to say goodbye with a last farewell concert at the age of 102.

      Teresa, her great-niece, carries out the story, showing Nelly as an artist and as a grandmother; the one who prepared white coffee for her while humming and singing nonstop
