Synopsis

A broken string, fractured echo chamber, rusting valves. One brilliant conductor, three gifted composers, and 100 musicians meet for four days of rehearsals. They speak different languages. Their instruments are broken. An orchestra of professional and amateur musicians, young and old, prepare, against all odds, for a one-time-only concert in Jerusalem.
A poetic, engaging take on broken and whole presents Jerusalem characters and an attempt to create harmony in a discordant city.
