    • Synopsis
    • This story began next to the sea. It started at the Mediterranean (Minorca) and continues through the Atlantic (Cádiz), where Joan Manuel Serrat and Joaquín Sabina wrote together the songs of La orquesta del Titanic, the album from their second and last tour around America. The film goes several decades back, when the two artists discovered the latinamerican continent and started a long lasting love story.
      Serrat has been traveling around Latin America for 45 years. He was exiled in Mexico when he was prosecuted by Franco’s dictatorship. In Argentina and Chile his fight against military coups is still remembered. Sabina arrived in America later. His poetry and rebel attitude seduced a large audience among different generations. In Argentina, he sings with the strength of a rock star and the emotions of a tango singer. In Mexico, the mariachis and the village bands sing Y nos dieron las 10 without knowing it was written by Sabina.
      “Two for the road” is a trip with two different artists and friends through a continent that has lived big changes, and where they have grown deep roots. Serrat is a symbol for a whole generation, who looks up to him as a model. Sabina is something different. He is the “cuate”, that mexican slang word that describes a friend, a pal.
