Truls Mørk was the first Scandinavian ever to win the Moscow Tchaikovsky competition, a triumph that marked the start of his musical career. He enjoys a close friendship with the principal conductor of the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra, Jonathan Nott. He played the Cello Concerto in B minor by Anton Dvořák with the entire orchestra at the conclusion of his time as "artist in residence."

"Extraordinary pieces of music transport me to another state of consciousness. I don't know if I can describe it any better. At least that is how playing the Dvořák cello concerto makes me feel."

The film visits Truls Mørk at his Scandinavian holiday home, accompanying him on his boat out at sea and on walks along the coast. The Cello Concerto by Anton Dvořák with the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra and the Chopin interpretations are focal points of the story.
