Paul Giger, violinist of world renown, is arranging his opus Karma Shadub for performance in the cathedral of St.Gallen; it is the opus he composed on the occasion of his son’s birth 30 years earlier. Ramòn films, searching for the person behind the musician, the father by whom he feels abandoned. The reasons for their estrangement have never been talked about. A portrait of a father-son relationship, a personal film about separation and self-discovery – quite simply, about becoming an adult.
