Retired, misanthropic music professor and former star cellist Karl Michaeli lives alone in his three-room flat in the 15th district after the death of his beloved wife Maria. To his immense displeasure, several foreign families have been living in his building for some time now, including 16-year-old Hamid, a polite, highly talented cello fan from Syria who tragically lost his family to the war in his homeland. An accident in the building brings the mismatched duo together. After initial reservations, Karl recognizes his young neighbor’s musical talent and takes him under his wing.
