Inclusion Films' poignant new documentary follows four young men (three with autism and one with Down's Syndrome) that were paired with four additional strangers to learn the art of connection by practicing tango with strangers.

Renowned choreographers Miriam Larici and Leonardo Barrionuevo provided their services for the project and were clearly moved by the process.

"Spending time with these dancers was one of the most memorable experiences of my career and in my life," said Larici. "I felt totally connected with each one of them. This experience will be in my heart forever."
