Synopsis

Austrian-born orchestra conductor Otmar Suitner had a career in Berlin (mainly with the East Berlin State Opera) and two families: one in the east and one in the western part of the divided city. Sixteen years after the Wall came down and he had to retire, the music has disappeared from his life. The film documents the son's journey to his father, discovering his art and exploring the hidden sides of their complicated family story. Father and son travel together for the first time to find out what is left after the music.
