A catastrophic love story.
He’s a musician in his mid-forties and is not really unhappy with his dull life. His girlfriend Nadine has a good income as a mathematical economist, and the recording studio also pays a few bills. Dreams of a career as an artist are long buried and no longer painful.
Then he meets Vanessa, a very young and extremely beautiful young actress. And for some inexplicable reason she is interested in him. Surprised that she knows his music. She’s a huge fan, her mother was too, back in the day. And now she tries to convince him to give it all another go. He falls in love with her. How ridiculous!
They embark on an affair. He leaves Nadine. His happiness and the chaos keep growing. Vanessa represents both of these to him. But he cannot leave this woman and her demons. In the end, could this be down to him and not Vanessa?
