This is an extraordinary documentary about the Iranian composer Nader Mashayeki and the Tehran Symphony Orchestra. In 2005, Iranian composer Nader Mashayekhi was asked to lead the Tehran Symphony Orchestra. He knew of the weak position of Western classical and contemporary music in Iran. But he took the challenge. Less than two years later he returned to Austria with his suitcase full of the pieces of his broken dream. Filmmaker Frank Scheffer captures the passionate composer during rehearsals with young musicians in Teheran, wandering through a desolate desert landscape, looking for new inspirations for new compositions and challenging performances. The director chose beautiful shots in a contemplative setting in which Mashayeki reflects on his life and debates the meaning of music and poetry, and his impossible yet unscathed love for his country.
