Orlando is an aged musician from a small town in Central Italy who lost his wife years ago and now lives alone, playing the accordion at weddings and working the land.
Valerio, his only child, left for Brussels soon after his mother’s death, which led Orlando to cut all ties with him. However, when he reaches out to his father to ask for help, Orlando feels he must oblige. For the first time in his life, he leaves the town and travels to Brussels to see Valerio, only to arrive when it is too late. His son is dead, leaving behind a twelve-year-old daughter, Lyse.
