In the follow-up to their Oscar-nominated debut Persepolis, directors Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud team up to adapt another of Satrapi's award-winning graphic novels. Since his beloved violin was broken, Nasser Ali Khan, one of the most renowned musicians in Tehran, has lost all taste for life. Finding no instrument worthy of replacing it, he decides to confine himself to bed to await death. As he waits, he plunges into deep reveries, with dreams as melancholic as they are joyous, taking him back to his youth. As pieces of the puzzle gradually fit together, the poignant secret of his life comes to light: a wonderful story of love which inspired his genius and his music.
