This is the story of father and son. The father is 79 years old, the son is 53. The father is a well-known conductor;
the son an unlucky artist. They live on different sides of the planet, and both are content with that. Their relationship
has long turned into one of love-hate; more hatred than love. The father calls his son by the children’s nickname
Ptitsyn, and this enrages the son. The son calls the father Your Majesty, and this enrages the father. When the father
is diagnosed with a fatal disease, son and father embark on a difficult path from hatred to love.
