Trailer

Oliver is a young pianist of Polish origins. He cannot bear the pressure created by his mother and a calculated agent, parts with his wife and goes to Poland, where he stops his European tour. He loses everything: love, recognition and a well-promising career. What’s more, he has a great debt to pay. In a hotel bar, he meets Franek, ex-professor of mathematics, as well as an avid player and expert in horse racing. A selfless, often rough friendship is born between both men: the young one and the older one. Thanks to Franek, Oliver becomes acquainted with Cornelia, a slightly mysterious woman, to whom he is more and more attracted.
