The celebrated and world-renowned Lazara String Quartet is struggling to prepare for their highest-profile performance when their gifted but volatile violist mysteriously disappears.

Violinist-turned-playwright Michael Hollinger's Opus has tempers flaring and egos clashing when a new member is introduced and the group's secrets are revealed.
