When a world-renowned conductor accepts a job as maestro of an orchestra comprised of Israeli and Palestinian teens, he knows there will be challenges but fails to anticipate their intensity. The teens' level of distrust makes it hard for them to put their feelings aside and let music unite them. Loosely inspired by Daniel Barenboim's West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, this gripping drama builds as a constantly growing ‘crescendo,' rising the tension and conflicts until the last frame.
