The conductor Jerzy Maksymiuk and his wife Eve make up a special relationship. The charismatic maestro, successful in the world of music, seems to be totally helpless and lost in the daily life without the help of his wife, who supports him in the simplest everyday activities and takes many life decisions on his behalf. The camera accompanies the artist during his work with outstanding musicians (including Janusz Olejniczak, Marcin Wyrostek, Sebastian Karpielą-Bułecka) and orchestras, as well as shows the fascinating world of the genius composer, absorbed in the score to the very boundaries of madness.In the film's soundtrack we will recognise music of 13 composers, including Brahms, Beethoven, Prokofiev, Lutosławski, Kilar, Penderecki and Maksymiuk himself.
