A Russian conductor’s (Alexei Guskov) refusal to eject Jewish musicians from his orchestra during the Communist era leads to his demotion and disgrace. But years later, the now janitor gets an unexpected second chance at glory when he intercepts an urgent invitation for the famed orchestra to play a coveted concert in Paris. Stealing the invitation, he decides to reassemble his former group of musicians for the opportunity to play the concert that never came to be.
