The power of music…
No sooner does renowned conductor Eduard Sporck agree to form an Israeli-Palestinian youth orchestra than he is drawn into a tempest of raw emotions. The young musicians, impacted their entire young lives by war, suppression and the constant risk of terrorist attacks, align behind their best violinists – the Palestinian Layla and the Israeli Ron – forming two columns of mistrust that are manifested both on and off the stage. Can Sporck convince these talents to set aside their hatred and make music instead of war?
