Amram, the son of Avraham Mufredi, turns up at the house of the legendary Persian tar (lute) player, Yosef Tawilla. Amram gives him the score of a work that his father, a member of Tawilla’s ensemble and his partner, wants to see performed before his impending death. Tawilla and Amram set out on a journey of discovery joined by groups of wonderful musicians. Amram will find love and Tawilla, if he succeeds; will fulfill Avraham Mufredi’s dying wish, maybe to bring succor to his tormented soul.
