A film about a complicated relationship between a mother and daughter.

90-year-old Nina and her single daughter Alice live together in a cramped flat. Between their beds is a black piano – a symbol of Alice’s unfulfilled music career. Nowadays they run a dancing group for seniors and their life is focused mainly on this. It seems that work makes up for the the lack of men in their lives, but is this really true?
