In 1973, an East German border guard patrolling a quiet section of the Berlin Wall has a strange and powerful experience: walking between apartments separated by the border, he hears piano music coming from either side – beautifully played and perfectly synchronized, as if by a single pianist… As he stands transfixed, he realizes that only he can hear it, from his unique position between the buildings – and between worlds…

Three decades later a young Canadian academic, in the midst of a personal crisis, has come to Berlin to explore his German father’s heritage and experience this remarkable city… and finds himself drawn into a series of bizarre co-incidences, uncovering a long-buried family tragedy and profoundly changing his understanding of himself and reality.
