‘Tell me what makes this life worth living. Wherein do we find beauty and is there anything to claim about that beauty. Why do we seem to know so much more about our frustrations. And what are we actually comforted by.

What, in other words, are the memories or expectations that are greater than our grief.’ Wim Kayzer put these questions to the twenty-six greats in the fields of music, visual art, science, philosophy and literature. And they tell their most personal experiences. An intellectual and emotional adventure lasting almost 40 hours.
