A truly luxurious resort, located in the Swiss Alps, is the ideal place to reconnect and reflect on the past and the future. Different famous personalities go there frequently, almost all related to the art world, to recover the charm that they might have missed in their lives. Fred Ballinger is an acclaimed and retired music composer, who has frequented the hotel for over forty years. This time he is accompanied by his daughter and one of his lifelong friends, Mick Boyle, a film director, who is working on the script for his next film. Both friends, knowing that their days are numbered, decide to face their future together talking about their professional lives and the infirmities that their age has given them.
