“The Tenth Man” has the set-up of a homecoming story, with a couple of quick eccentricities. It takes after Ariel, an Argentinian man living in NYC who is flying home to Buenos Aires, Argentina to see his dad, Usher, and acquaint him with his significant other, an artist named Monica. In any case, from the earliest starting point, nothing works out as expected: Monica can’t go along with him in Argentina for a couple days and Ariel can’t locate some irregular Velcro shoes that Usher has asked. To top it all off, when Ariel gets to Bueno Aires, Usher is just a voice on the telephone, disclosing to him for a long time that he’ll be there soon.
Back in the place he grew up, a volunteer group known as The Foundation that his dad drives, Ariel does a bit of energizing as he gets sucked into Usher’s business.
