Plot synopsis
Guy Agladze resides in a large city and plays in an orchestra. Guy has a number of friends and acquaintances. His days are hectic and busy. He has to manage too much and he is always late. His time, his energy, his talents evaporate in the hassle of the day and among the little things to be done. Guy dies in an accident without having managed to note down the music that his soul was playing in the rare moments of his solitude.
