The son of a renowned Nazi hunter attempts to retrieve a stolen Matisse painting. Jane Asher and William Gaminara star in this atmospheric drama by Ronald Frame.

Paulette is a music teacher in Nice. She is being shadowed by a man. Levin, when cornered, claims that he wants to take up the piano again. In fact Levin is the son of a famous Nazi-hunter, recently deceased. Paulette is the daughter of an SS officer who escaped to Buenos Aires. In Paulette's apartment Levin locates the object of his searches - a Matisse painting. But is it an original? Both Paulette and Levin have been held in a dream-like state, troubled by and unable to shake off the past. Paulette moved to Nice, attracted by the image in the painting, and frustrated by her mother's attempts to ruin her romances. Levin was never able to please his father: by finding the painting, will he finally be 'proving' himself?
