Fourhand is a wry tale of making music, falling in love, falling in friendship, and adjusting one's expectations of life. Two men and one woman link up with one another in order to resolve a perennial New York difficulty: finding and keeping a satisfactory place to live. Both men love classical music: Richard, a shy scientist, plays piano earnestly if clumsily in the true sense of an amateur, for love and the passion of playing. Frank, a charming womanizer, plays piano simply because he is gifted and chooses it as his profession. The two become student and teacher - and in the meantime fall for the same woman. As the three become friends (and more), their relationship evolves and resolves in unexpected ways.
