Where the word ends, the music begins.

Gleb Yanovsky is a virtuoso musician who on the peak of success is not able to perform any more due to an illness and he tries to find another meaning of life, another purpose as a supporting point. And to help him with this comes - his past. He tries to collect his memories from his childhood in Kiev from 1970s, youth in Leningrad, his present in Germany and then his memories from Kiev already in 2000-s. But only Brisbane is not on the list of his life adventures. And does this city even exist? Or is it just a Mirage, a dream, a utopian ideal, the music of the spheres?
