Kỷ niệm 20 năm nhạc sĩ Trịnh Công Sơn qua đời, một thiền sinh nối mạch Thiền với ca từ họ Trịnh qua 20 khúc tản văn. Ký ức Hà Nội những năm bảy mươi, tám mươi. Những mẩu chuyện về tình mẫu tử, anh em. Trải nghiệm thiền định tại Lumbini, quê hương Đức Phật Thích Ca. Một sợi chỉ mảnh nối tư tưởng Voltaire, Sagan, Hemingway, Dylan, Trầm Tử Thiêng với Trịnh, tạo cảm hứng cho những trăn trở và khúc hoan ca qua bao cung bậc thăng trầm của cuộc sống, Hương Bưởi và Xác Pháo là một lời nhắc nhở về bản chất thánh thiện của con người.
