When world-famous conductor Eduard Sporck accepts the job to create an Israeli-Palestinian youth orchestra for a performance to coincide with peace negotiations, he is drawn into a storm of discord that seems unresolvable. The two factions of young musicians have grown up in a state of conflict, with fear governing their perceptions of each other. With only three weeks of rehearsal, Sporck’s essential task becomes more interpersonal than musical: can the children of conflict come together in harmony? Does music have the strength to build bridges despite the obstacles and against all odds?
