Mango Tango: watch on Amazon Instant Video now!
All she ever wanted was to meet a nice guy.
In the romantic comedy "MANGO TANGO", Marlene, a New York City dance teacher, while juggling her career and searching for a meaningful relationship, is driven neurotic by monogamy phobic, obsessive and downright crazy men she encounters and dates. After each break up she tries to console herself with a mango in her bathtub.
One day, after an especially painful break up she happens to run into Dr. Goldstein, a therapist, in Central Park. The chance encounter leads to her becoming his client and over time her trust and confidence grow. In typical Freudian tradition, it doesn't take long for her to fall in love with her therapist. As if her relationship pains weren't enough, a stalker surfaces, who warns her in letters and anonymous phone calls about chem- trails that the World Management Team is supposedly spraying into the air over densely populated cities. The intruder's messages increase over time, leaving her paranoid and scared. Who could it be? There are a few suspects, including her Ex- boyfriend Tony, a follower of an Indian guru who regularly rolls coconuts around his head to bust his 'bad karma'.
Totally stressed out, she follows her therapist's advice and takes a relaxing vacation in the German Alps away from it all. But instead, Marlene finds herself facing her greatest challenge. Will she fight or give up?
