For concert pianist, Anat (Naama Preis), music is all she has. Having never been able to reach her father’s lofty musical standards, she rests her hopes on her unborn child. After her water breaks during a concert, she delivers a boy, who, devastatingly, is born deaf. I will tell you that Anat takes drastic measures in this movie nthat affects her Son, Husband and Father and her conscious.
Anat’s will to raise a musical genius who would befit her respected, musically accomplished family only becomes stronger, and she takes drastic measures to make sure her son becomes the composer her father always wanted. But when the boy grows up indifferent to his destiny as a great pianist, Anat will have to stand up to her father — and her own actions.
