It is Lara’s 60th birthday, and she would have every reason to be happy, because her son Viktor is giving the most important piano concerto of his career this evening. After all, it was she who designed and pushed his musical career. But Viktor has not been available for weeks and there is nothing to suggest that Lara is welcome at his premiere. Without further ado, she buys all the remaining tickets and distributes them to everyone she meets that day. But the more Lara struggles for a successful evening, the more the events get out of control.

After the film Ulrich Sonnenschein (epd film) talks with director Jan-Ole Gerster.
