The main protagonist, Matúš, is a prodigiously talented 30-year-old musician. He studied violoncello at a prestigious arts academy in Berlin but never finished – he quit school when his adoptive mother had fallen sick. Today, he and his brother, Dávid, who suffers from achondroplasia, live on the margins of society, one for the other. Their bond makes their existence slightly simpler and more pleasant. They are both trying to survive in the world of ‘the big people’ – each in his own way, pursuing his own ambitions. They play a double bass together in the streets of Vienna, where they commute by train.
