The CBS Film Series provided the following synopsis of the film: “When world-famous conductor Eduard Sporck accepts the job to create an Israeli-Palestinian youth orchestra, he is quickly drawn into a tempest of sheer unsolvable problems. The young musicians from both sides are far from able to form a team, and mistrust each other on- and off-stage. Will Sporck succeed and make the young people forget their hatred, at least for the three weeks until the concert? The film is a gripping drama with a constantly growing ‘crescendo’ until the very last frame. It is a contribution to the worldwide efforts toward understanding, humanity and peace.”
