Does music have the power to overcome ignorance, hate, and prejudice among young people of different religions and nationalities? As peace talks are held between diplomats from Israel and Palestine, an orchestra comprised of young Palestinians and Israelis is to give a concert in South Tyrol. The youth become convinced that music can contribute to understanding between peoples not only on a small scale, but also globally. This great work about reconciliation features not only such well-known actors as Peter Simonischek, but also Israeli and Palestinian novice actors, who will be present at the screening. To make it easier to follow the film, passages in Hebrew are given German and English subtitles.
