In a small church in Halberstadt, in East Germany, a pipe organ plays avant-gard composer John Cage's "Organ2/ASLSP" day and night, without interruption, until the year 2640, resulting in a 639-year long concert. In a humorous but also thoughtful way the film shows different sides of this mind-boggling project: on the one hand the long and overly intellectual wrestles among the initiators, on the other the volunteering staff members' direct and practical way of dealing with all the work that surrounds such a project.

Human life is short and full of fear. Through art we can express and record feelings, transmitting and at best transcending our individual idiosyncrasies. This work makes a journey through a fragile world threatened by various dark and destructive forces. Whether the dangers are real or imaginary is of less concern than their psychological presence and impact.
