    It’s the opening night at the concert house where Arvid works, but when his sister steals the spotlight, his worst sides are revealed. Arvid has arranged for his sister to fill in for the orchestra at the concert house where he works. But when he ends up in a petty conflict with another man, who she in turn is praised by, his narcissism and need for attention leads to a path of self-destruction.
