Since playing the violin is no longer possible for her, she ends up teaching promising young talents. 27-year-old Antti in particular catches her attention and she decides to raise him as high in the music world as she has been. But soon their student-teacher relationship moves towards the gray area of power relations although they are from different worlds and generations. Causes and consequences, dreams and reality - these perceptions are quite different for both parties. She has a son but an unhappy marriage to Jaakko who is trying his best to adapt to her mood swings and ex-lover Björn are also entangled in this web of relationships.
