In Ireland over 30,000 piano students prepare for exams each year. In this surprisingly quirky and uplifting documentary, we are invited into the world of the piano lesson. The film examines the special bond between piano teachers and their pupils, shares in the students’ struggles, and marvels at their teachers’ dedication.
It is a film with buckets of charm and an endearing subtext. A film sure to make audiences who have never played the piano utterly envious and make others truly nostalgic.
