Julian and his pet pigeon are fixtures in downtown Guelph. This film brings to light an earlier chapter of his life, when he was living in an old warehouse in Belgium (for twelve years) building harpsichords. Facing eviction from his live-in workshop, he is confronted with the fact that he has neglected himself as a human being and he is suddenly aware of pressing questions about his future and his purpose in life.
