They are Argentina's version of the cowboy-legends in their time. Do they still exist or are they specters of the past? This program uses the mystique and the modern manifestation of the gaucho to help build Spanish language vocabulary and phrasing knowledge. Highlighting ways to compare life now to how it used to be, the video profiles the son of a gaucho as he manages the estate of El Tordillo in Buenos Aires province, a wide open area of farmland in which men on horseback once worked and roamed. Others who care for the estate are also featured, including its owners, who are contemplating opening it to tourism.
