Logline

THE BURDEN OF MEMORY

Mr. Fitzthum, a young aspiring musicologist, is sent to the not-so-young musicologist Mr. Szabo to do research in his apartment for a valuable music-sheet that Szabo has borrowed years ago for a never-completed dissertation. But Szabo, who collapsed mentally under the weight of valuable archival material and sanitary defects, forces Fitzthum deeper and deeper into his dysfunctional systems of life.
