The cellist Mischa Maisky has been one of the greats in his field for more than 50 years. This music film not only shows Maisky's outstanding playing but also pays tribute to an unparalleled personality in classical music. His children, long-standing musical friends, and esteemed colleagues come together to celebrate the cellist and himself.

Starting with his concert in Lübeck with the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen under the direction of Paavo Järvi and works that have shaped his life in a very special way, we look back on an eventful life together with his children - Lily and Sascha - and his musical companions Martha Argerich and Janine Jansen. We get closer to the cellist and discover the musician in his entirety as a person - on and off the stage.
