The four members of a world-renowned string quartet struggle to stay together in the face of death, competing egos and insuppressible lust. Set in iconic New York City, this is the story of four musicians, bound together by their passion for music and long years of working together. But when their patriarch Peter (Academy Award winner Christopher Walken, The Deer Hunter) is diagnosed with a terminal illness, the repercussions hit the group deeper than they could imagine. First and second violinists Robert (Academy Award winner Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Capote) and Daniel (Mark Ivanir, Schindler's List) row over first chair, Robert and violist Juliette's (Academy Award nominee Catherine Keener, Being John Malkovich) marriage hits the rocks when he has an affair, and their headstrong daughter embarks on her own explosive affair - with Daniel. As their 25th anniversary performance looms, the musicians must either find a way to overcome their troubles, and preserve their legacy - or part ways forever.
