Francisco and Sophia met on a rainy afternoon in Santiago de Chile. It was love at first sight. Both like to dance for their lives and take every opportunity to do so. Sophia is a special woman. Attractive, but also self-centered and provocative. She loves to flirt.Francisco adores her, but he is always to busy trying to convince her to just love him. The spectators experience a heartbreaking dance with an extraordinary creature with big mouth and dark eyes.

Bring me the head of my ex-wife Is a sentence you would expect in a dark mafia thriller rather than in a variety show. The Chilean Francisco Obregon calls on a spectator taken from the hall to take the body part out of a suitcase. It belongs to a clap-jawed doll with which Obregon sings the "Besame mucho" in a tenderly melting and yet comic duet with which he can't let the young boy's pretty eyes wander.
