A special biopic
It is no coincidence that the series bears the same name as the album Páez released in 1992. El amor después del amor sold more than a million copies just in Argentina, a record for the country and Latin America, where it is still a legendary rock album after three decades.
The 14-song album was inspired by a new romance the singer had at that time. This love motivated him after a previous breakup. Although the relationship did not last more than 10 years, the inspiration and illusion of the new romance catapulted Fito's album and took him to perform more than 100 shows in 1992 and 1993.
