Anna is a young fencer. She lives with her father in the house she has inherited from her mother. An unbearable silence , imposed by feelings of guilt , prevails in Anna's house after her mother's death. Communication with her father is difficult and often impossible. Anna will meet Alexander ,a very successfull dancer choreographer . Alexander 's midlife crisis is leading him to an unexpected,selfish and often selfdistructive behaviour in his personal life and artistic activity. Trapped in the impasse, ordained by his fears , he feigns an injury and starts behaving like an invalid.His false infirmity, while at first seems to be a solution to most of his problems, will eventually become a source of many more anxieties. When he meets Anna he is trapped and isolated in the existence he himself has created .Although he realises Anna's input in his life, he is unable to respond and appreciate this new relationship. Anna admires Alexander and she is even fascinated by his weaknesses. The difficult confrontation , between them and her daily demanding exercise in the art of attack and defense in fencing, will lead her to an exhausting emotional state. She ventures a decisive confrontation with her father, in her attempt to put an end to their silence and finally face the ghosts of their past,still haunting them. The more complicated things become in every apsect of Anna's relationships the more strenght she seems to be gaining A rare strenght that will give her the courage to tackle her life and the tournament. Just before her father's death Anna has won both the quality she longed for in their relationship and the championship in the tournament . The shadows in her relationship with Alexander, do not seem to haunt her anymore. A new light is shed as Alexander finaly succeeds in establishing a dialogue with his demanding self and in estimating it clearly. A film about those moments in our relationships,where even the most contradictory characters may come together in order to whisper to each other the melody of a symphony. A melody which may enable the voyage of our dreams.
