After a concert rehearsal in emergency conditions, we meet the orchestra again six months later. They are rehearsing the 40th all over again. Between two breaks, a few musicians watch a video of their conductor, make comments on his gestures as well as the wordless language they use to communicate. Louis Langree takes us into the rehearsal work "until the magic moment, when everything's shared."
