Decrescendo tells the story of the blossoming friendships that take place between the young psychologist Tomek and his patients from an old persons’ home, each of who bears their own touching and tragic story. Each day Tomek's fascination with beauty and youth clashes not only with the aging and the dying but also with their emphatic will to life. In this context the musical term Decrescendo takes on a new meaning.
