Family relationships are built throughout whole life, overcoming your own prejudices, complexes, limitations, and the awareness that no one will hurt you more than a member of your family. Two artistic souls, father and son, live in constant tension, a deadly mixture of love and hate, with a predominance of hate. Mark, fifty-two year old man, has emigrated to Israel, his artistic career has faded, his emotional life as well. Victor, famous conductor despite his eighty-two years of age, leads a very acting life; he plays, rehearses and performs. After the death of Mark’s mother and the beginnings of his father's illness, men learn to look at themselves in a completely different way.
