A Street violinist (a busker) gets ready to play in his usual spot just like he does every day to try and make a living. His clothes are shabby, his violin case is worn. And then we hear beautiful music, exquisitely played.
Hearing the music, a girl stops to listen. She becomes absorbed by the melody and starts to dance. First she moves timidly but gradually she relaxes and abandons herself to the rhythm of the violin. The violinist is mesmerized – she dances as if he is playing for her and her alone.
But their enchanting performance hides a dream. A broken dream in danger of dying. Since she was little, she has wanted to be a great dancer, like her idols, but had to flee. For the violinist, playing on magnificent stages is a thing of the past. Now he must play on street corners to make it from day to day.
But right here right now nothing matters except for the music, the dance and what they each dreamt of once upon a time.
For just one moment they are living their lives again.
