A composer creates a symphony based on birdsong, but fails to recreate the singing of the robin. His wife, an ornithologist, had died while trying to record this bird’s chirruping. Tormented by guilt at her death, he seeks support from a psychologist who helps him realise that he did not listen to or understand her. Every fragment of the past leads him to relive the tragic incident and he is challenged to experience it again in order to find peace.
