A compilation of two short films on Glen Gould. Off the record: at his cottage retreat near Lake Simcoe, Ontario, where he revels in his freedom from public performances, playing the piano for an audience of one - his collie. He rambles through the woods, and chats about composition with fellow musician Franz Kraemer. On the record: in New York, where he jokes with a cab driver, banters with sound engineers, and tapes the Italian Concerto. This is the other side of Gould - the creator and interpreter of music who is vigorous, sensitive, self-critical, and hard to satisfy
