A languid and sultry fairytale about a devilish accordion by Ciro Guerra, director of the impressive The Wandering Shadows (2004). Everyone who plays the enchanted instrument is doomed to the life of a roaming musician; he has to play, gamble and make love until he dies.
The present owner, Ignacio Camillo, has recently lost his wife and thinks the time has come to get rid of the accursed instrument - it has to go back to his legendary teacher. A headstrong kid, attracted by the romantic life of the artiste, wants to accompany him on the trip, whatever the cost. He doesn't mind the eternal restlessness, as long as it means he will be able to make music all his life. But is he qualified to assess the situation?
The journey takes them over mountains, through deserts and past lethal singing contests. A visual and musical spectacle.
