Thirty years ago, Andrei Simoniovich Filipov, the renowned conductor of the Bolshoi orchestra, lost his prestigious job when he was fired for hiring Jewish musicians. Now a cleaning man at the Bolshoi, he learns by accident that the Châtelet Theater in Paris invites the Bolshoi orchestra to play there.
He decides to gather together his former musicians and to perform in Paris in the place of the current Bolshoi orchestra. As a solo violin player to accompany his old Jewish or Gypsy musicians he wants Anne-Marie Jacquet (Melanie Laurent - INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS), a young virtuoso. If they all overcome the hardships ahead this very special concert will be a triumph.
