Arcil (Tenghiz Ameridze) is a former music student who once studied at the Conservatory. The painfully shy Arcil's once-promising musical future has resulted in a career as a piano tuner. He sleeps in his car and tunes the instruments of the pompous nouveau riche. Lonely women try to seduce him, and their husbands humiliate him with body searches for stolen valuables. The lovable loser is subjected to beatings by other piano tuners and takes out his frustrations by playing the instrument with brilliance and concert bravado. The film targets social criticism at the nouveau riche for their shallowness and wasteful extravagance.
