"Birthday parties are all the same. Believe me, if you've lived through 59 of them, your enthusiasm gradually decreases. I'd like to do something else..." - Lara


It is Lara's sixtieth birthday and it is surely no coincidence that her son Viktor is giving the most important piano concert of his career – since it was her, who mapped out and forced Victor's musical career in the first place. Yet the day does not go as expected and Lara has to discover that Viktor is using the concert to finally free himself from her grip.
