Otto Steiner ekes out his days in a Salzburg sanatorium while, in the
world outside, History is baring its teeth.
Austrian, (a bit) Jewish, (completely) alone, all that matters to him now
Tuberculosis eats away at him as much as the petty humiliations of being

Hitler as well, and almost manages it.
Instead, he will mastermind a musical rebellion… in order to save Mozart!
