This film portrays the endeavors of a group of Iranian master musicians who are trying to locate, restore and record a repertoire of compositions attributed to Abd al-Qadir Maraghi, a prominent composer who lived six centuries ago and greatly influenced Middle Eastern classical music. During their six-year journey, the group finally is able to reassemble a major portion of these works by sifting through manuscripts and other documents deeply buried in the archives of Persian and Turkish musical history. The film follows these musicians as they rediscover and then record forgotten music that deepens the roots of Persian music as far back as six centuries.
