A former world-famous conductor of the Bolshoï orchestra, known as "The Maëstro", Andreï Filipov had seen his career publicly broken by Leonid Brezhnev for hiring Jewish musicians and now works cleaning the concert hall where he once directed. One day, he intercepts an official invitation from the prestigious Théâtre du Châtelet. Through a series of mad antics, he reunites his old orchestra, now composed of old alcoholic musicians, and flies to perform in Paris and complete the Tchaikovsky concerto interrupted 30 years earlier. For the concerto, he engages a young violin soloist with whom he has an unexpected connection.

Well, except that overly-badly-acted intro scene meant to introduce the 'show'. Unforgettable scene that never fails to make me laugh - Signourney Weaver's hysterics at having to dodge through the 'choppers' that exist in the real ship only by virtue of having been written into an episode of the show ... "whoever wrote this episode should die!". I die laughing.
