    Brief synopsis

    Based on the myth of Oedipus, MUSIC tells the story of a young man who gains something every time he suffers a loss. In the end he is blind, but he feels his life stronger than ever.

    A boy grows up with his step-parents in Greece. At the age of twenty he unwittingly becomes the murderer of his natural father. He is sent to prison, where he falls in love with a woman who works there. Neither of them suspect that she is his mother. When he is released from prison, they live together and have a daughter.

    Berlin, twenty years later. The man has emigrated to Germany with his daughter. His eyesight has been worsening since the death of his wife, who killed herself. He is a musician. His producer introduces him to a singer. For three days they record rock songs with her. These are the days in which he finally loses his sight.
