León Gieco, the legendary activist folk-rocker known as "the Argentinean Bob Dylan," organized the remarkable musical tour chronicled in this uplifting and entertaining documentary. Gathering together musicians and artists of different abilities and disabilities, some of them old friends, others new recruits, he takes "Mundo Alas: An Alternative Tour" on a triumphant circuit of Argentina that climaxes at the gigantic Luna Park arena in Buenos Aires. As limbless harmonica player Pancho Chevez requests, "Don't treat me as a handicapped person but as a musician." Luminous musical performances and gorgeous scenery form the backdrop for the performers' growing rapport both on and off the stage.
