Synopsis:
Albert Huybrechts is a Belgian composer born in 1899. A Prisoner of his proletarian origins and an alienating family, music was his salvation, his escape. His premature death at 38 left him very little time to let his nonetheless masterly compositions be heard. Today, his unique work and life are being rediscovered, like a letter that had slipped beneath a piece of furniture. Through a testimony written by the composer’s brother, the film develops a free form, a blend of voice, music, invention and reality. What follows is an emotional and moving look into the personal life of one of the greatest Belgian artists of the 20th century.
