Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
In this experimental film, Franz Schubert, on his deathbed, hallucinates about his life. Images are superimposed, one upon the other, multiplying as one hallucination follows another. His difficult relationship with his mother and his excellent one with his father are meditated upon as he walks down a rural lane, and scenes from his operas appear.
