13 min - 2019 - France

Nathan is a young prodigy of seventeen, about to have a piano lesson. Emma, his teacher, is eight years older than him. To prepare for the end of year audition, the two pianists play together « The Sorcerer Apprentice ». While they play, the two start to fall for each other; they seduce each other through their music. Beyond notes and music, what is really happening in this practice room?
