    Drama

    Karin is at the top of her career as a solo violinist when she gets into an accident and loses the sense of feeling in her left hand. The realization that she is no longer at the top is a great defeat, but eventually she accepts that by teaching she can stay close to music. Like many male cultural giants before her, she muddles her passion for music and art with a physical attraction to a student, Antti, several years her junior. As things come to a breaking point, she is forced to choose between family and the loneliness of being at the top.
