Simon Nardis, a former jazz pianist with an international reputation, has been leading a quiet life for ten years with his wife and family. But his life takes a whole new direction one night when he misses his train and passes by a jazz club located near the port of Brest. Deep down he has always known that for him life is only real when he is creating music. He finds himself face to face with the demons that it has taken him so much time to overcome: music, alcohol and doubts. He is hooked by the club’s atmosphere and his encounter with Debbie, the club owner. Simon wants life to make his decisions for him. That is exactly what is going to happen.
