The Zakaria-Paliashvili Music School in Tbilisi: Hardly any instrument can be tuned anymore, and many teachers are so old that they could be the great-grandparents of their students. Those who are allowed to step through the battered main entrance after the strict entrance examination do so with pride because former Paliashvili students regularly conquer the world’s stages. The violinist Lisa Batiashvili and pianist Khatia Buniatishvili were taught here. The children dream of such a success, their parents all the more so. The film accompanies the students and their teachers over the course of one school year. An observant and character-based documentary about a magical place.
