Noah Gamliel (Lior Ashkenazi), a world-renowned musician and orchestra conductor, abruptly leaves behind a brilliant career and loving girlfriend to return to the home he left thirty years earlier. Once there, he finds his father’s Alzheimers progressing at an alarming pace, with his only remaining joy being able to sing in the local choir.
When the choir’s conductor passes away, Noah decides to take his place. All the while, he’s carrying around a devastating secret – Noah is slowly going deaf.
