Dominik Połoński is an eminent musician who survived cancer. His struggle with the disease left with the use only one arm. This, however, did not prevent him from returning to practicing and concertizing, although his repertoire has changed since the disease. No longer able to perform virtuoso compositions, he finds fulfilment as a performer by playing contemporary pieces in which he experiments with the instrument’s sound. The film focuses on the relationship between the musician and his instrument.
