An emotional detective story spread over two continents and half a century, this deeply moving saga centers on young violin prodigy Dovidl, a recent Polish-Jewish refugee to London, at the start of World War II. Hours before his debut performance, the young man mysteriously vanishes without a trace and his brother Martin is left without any information regarding his whereabouts. This unwavering drama about friendship, betrayal, and reconciliation illustrates both the horrors of war and sibling rivalry with pulsing musical revelations. From acclaimed filmmaker François Girard comes a stylistic and emotionally stunning film that shows how within the darkest of mysteries, sometimes only music has the power to illuminate the truth, heal, and redeem. Introduction by Asher Biemann (UVA)
