Fred and Mick, old friends on holiday in an elegant hotel in the Alps. Fred, who has spent most of his life as conductor and composer, is now retired. Mick, a film director appreciated, still has the power and pleasure of working in this industry. They looked confused tenderness and curiosity in their children’s lives. While Mick is trying to finish the script of what he considers to be his last major film, Fred does not have the slightest intention-to reapuca musical career. But there is someone who wants at all costs to see him again directing.
