Classical pianist Jonathan finds himself unable to work after an accident. But the physical injury is soon compounded by a darker, psychological pain as he fends off the world around him, including music itself. London has never felt so lonely.

The arrival of Kimberly, an agency carer, at first feels like an invasion.

Chaconne charts the coming together of two people from the same streets but with very different lives. What does it take to forge a connection and stave off loneliness in the modern world?

Ms. Brill is unable to attend the festival.

Thom Petty, the film's writer and star, is hoping to attend the festival.
