Paolo is a young musician trying to survive with his music. This passion doesn't let him live a quiet life: he needs to work and create music also when he is not so inspired (what is inspiration, by the way?). He is working on a new album and his relation with productions that should invest in his work is not so idyllic. The circuit work-art-life he is living is very complex and Paolo, psichologically disturbed, is very tired of this and lose his lucidity. His brother Carlo and his girlfriend try to help him, but as the creative process moves on so does the urge to push oneself beyond that Paolo feels. This feeling inevitaby leads him to face life, searching for a note of flavour. But life presents its check, which prices would he pay? what will be the results of this clash?
