A divorce abruptly disrupts the simple life of the well-worn piano tuner Samuel Dirk. His ambitious mother Patatie and the sexually charged Christina Panther are keen to offer their advisory insights but Samuel turns to his flamboyant, childhood friend Edwin, who is seemingly a successful piano dealer in Belgium and Asia.

When Edwin unexpectedly turns up at Samuel’s door with his curious Asian girlfriend Titty, their old friendship immediately falls back into familiar hierarchies and it is soon evident that both men are no longer who they were. Patatie however is thrilled to see Edwin’s apparent success and cooks up a plan with him to rescue the remains of Samuel’s life, convincing Samuel to join Edwin in Belgium.

In Belgium, Samuel learns that Edwin’s accomplished life is not what it seems. However Titty’s absurdly beautiful perspective and her beautifully absurd Asian culture give him the confidence he needs.

With renewed enthusiasm Samuel returns home, but Patatie doesn’t see his inner changes and feels responsible for what she perceives as his unfulfilled life. Helping Samuel back into the alchemic cooking pot is her ultimate sacrifice and Samuel’s final daydream.
