A young boy is auditioning for the orchestra of a concentration camp. He leaves his father behind and walks the long and cold distance to the audition place which really is an execution site. He begins to play and his thoughts escape in a fantasy world. At the last note he returns to the harsh reality and stands waiting for the decision of the the firing squad. His father listens from a distance.
