Plot

Simon is a famous violinist who became a drunkard. His wife Laura created seven years earlier a classical orchestra of which he was one of the three pillars. After an attack of delirium tremens, he meets Pierre, a former alcoholic, who was able to overcome his habit, and who decides to help Simon. This would change his relationship with Laura, who has always tried in vain to save Simon from his addiction, and is resentful of a stranger’s success.
