At 80, conductor, composer, and pianist Jerzy Maksymiuk remains completely active, for many almost too much so. Demanding of himself and of others, never slowing down, merciless to poor performers, he remains fascinated by music and focused on his scores to the point of madness. He is loved by the prominent, but irritating to and disliked by hacks. His wife, Ewa, is a person of equal importance his story. Although not sharing his gift, she is absolutely indispensable to him because his art and his existence are so dependent on her. This is the story of a great passion and great talent, and the even greater cost of that talent.
