A Modern Man

At the centre of the stage stands a world-famous violinist, the rich and handsome Charlie Siem. People look at him with admiration. They are moved by the beautiful music and see only perfection, someone to envy. At the stage, Charlie is alone.

Charlie started his violin lessons at the age of three. He has grown into self-discipline and luxury. He fancies tailor-made suits and Porches. His performances are impeccable in every way. Charlie poses in Hugo Boss ads and posts immaculate selfies to social media. “Maybe I would be happier, if I thought about someone other than myself”, he ponders.

Selected scenes from his everyday life reveal the downside to Charlie’s self-discipline: almost complete inability to see anything or anyone else. As Charlie stumbles towards a change, the film hints of the big questions. What is really important in life and how much are you willing to sacrifice for it? And the most interesting question of all: who is Charlie Siem, really?
