A musician who drops the bow has no place in a band: the story of Csángáló, the world-famous gypsy violist who suffers from Parkinson's.
Csángáló, the world-famous gypsy violist of the Szászcsávás Band, lives in a remote Transylvanian village. One day his hand starts shaking uncontrollably and the diagnostic is clear: he is suffering from Parkinon's disease. As a musician who drops the bow has no place in a band, Csángáló is expelled by his old friend, the band leader Dumnezeu. The musician's last hope is that Bálint, his equally talented grandson, would carry on the musical tradition, which is unique in the world. When everything seems to be lost, a miracle could only come from the hands of God.
