Charalambos Vatiliotis, or Harry, is considered Australia's greatest living violin maker. He and his wife Maria came from Cyprus in the 1950s.
Romano Crivici, a professional violinist and composer, has known Harry for 48 years.
Together they share the making of Romano's last violin which also threatens to be Harry's last, as the ravages of old age take their toll.
Shot in the one location - the home in the suburbs of Sydney which Harry and Maria have shared for over 60 years - the director has spent many days over many months charting the making of Harry and Romano's last violin within the context of the love, friendship and care that each of the three protagonists shares. The director has been hands-off and observational, capturing the intimate and meditative process of hand-making a fine violin from a few rough pieces of wood together with the, often comical, interactions between Harry, Maria, and Romano their friend of many years. An important element is an exquisite score by Romano Crivici performed on Harry's instruments.
