United States, Argentina, 2009


Tetro follows the fresh faced and naïve, 17-year-old Bennie who arrives in Argentina to look for his long-lost older brother, a reclusive playwright whom he hasn’t seen in years. When Bennie finds his brother, the brilliant but melancholy writer ‘Tetro,’ he is not welcomed with open arms.
