Synopsis

Out in the muddy outskirts of Buenos Aires, 11-year-old Delfín dreams of playing the French horn in a children’s orchestra that is being formed in a nearby town. He lives alone with his father in a ramshackle house from which they could be evicted any second, and splits his time between school and helping his father make ends meet. But nothing will stop him from taking part in that audition. Anchored by the extraordinary chemistry between Valentino Catania as the title character and Christian Salguero as his father, “Delfín” tells a poignant and hopeful story that the entire family can enjoy.

Delfín, de 11 años, sueña con tocar el corno francés en una orquesta infantil que se está formando en una ciudad cercana. Delfín vive con su padre en una destartalada casa de la que podrían ser desalojados en cualquier momento, y divide su tiempo entre la escuela y ayudando a su padre a llegar a fin de mes. Aun así, nada le impedirá participar en esa audición. Respaldada por la extraordinaria química entre Valentino Catania como Delfín y Christian Salguero como su padre, “Delfín” cuenta una historia conmovedora y esperanzadora apta para toda la familia.
