A film about the links between three leading musicians: the composer Luigi Nono, the pianist Maurizio Pollini, and the conductor Claudio Abbado. Interviews, quotations, rehearsal excerpts and, time and again, wonderful shots of Nono's home city of Venice paint a fascinating and moving portrait of the friendship between these three artists, a friendship that has had a unique impact on the world of music today.
