It is Lara’s sixtieth birthday, and actually she would have every reason to be happy, because her son Viktor is giving the most important piano concert of his career that evening. After all, it was she who designed and pushed his musical career. But Viktor has been unreachable for weeks and there is nothing to suggest that Lara will be welcome at his premiere. Without further ado, she buys all the remaining tickets and hands them out to everyone she meets that day. But the more Lara struggles to have a successful evening, the more events spiral out of control.
