Kyra is a young cellist on her way to becoming an outstanding soloist. During an important concert, one of the strings of her cello comes loose, unnerving her; this results in a panic attack. At the start of her next concert, she gets stage fright for the first time, which could ruin her career. Kyra tries everything to make her panic disappear, but within the orchestra it is an absolute taboo to talk about subjects as sensitive as this.
