Il padre della regista, il famoso violoncellista Anner Bylsma, è il protagonista del film. Sembra che Bylsma sia uno dei pochi a conoscere il “segreto” di Boccherini. Per molti anni il suo sogno è stato recarsi all’ormai abbandonato Palacio del Infante don Luis de Borbón, dove Boccherini ha vissuto e dove ha scritto le sue più importanti composizioni. Il film segue Bylsma nel suo viaggio al palazzo, dove un quintetto di giovani musicisti suonerà la musica di Boccherini. The director’s father, acclaimed Dutch cellist Anner Bylsma, features as the main character of the film. Bylsma is said to be one of few people today who possess Boccherini’s secret. His dream has been for many years to travel to the abandoned Palacio del Infante don Luis de Borbón; where Boccherini lived and wrote what was to be his most important compositions. The film joins Bylsma on his journey to the palace where a quintet of the new generation will play Boccherini’s music.
