Storyline

It is the 1880's. Deep in the countryside the Bass Player decides to swim in the lake. There he sees a young girl asleep on the bank. Captivated, he ties a bunch of flowers to her fishing line but the idyll is shattered as he discovers his clothes have been stolen. The girl suffers the same fate. To spare her blushes and unknown to him, the girl hides in the bass player's now empty instrument case. Based on the short story by Anton Chekhov - "Romance with a Double Bass" Written by John Mangan
