SYNOPSIS

An unassuming middle-aged accountant learns he has only weeks to live. Rather than tell everyone, Martin is determined to learn the three pages of a Bach adagio for piano he’d abandoned as a child. That accomplished, he performs the piece for his wife and friends, completing his life and thanking those who brightened it along the way.
