Sometimes music speaks where words fail.

Zoe was just a child when cancer turned her left eye into a blind pearl. Children can be cruel about that sort of thing, but Zoe’s father Danilo offers her solace in the form of music: Chopin, Prokofiev and Debussy. Years later, when her mother dies, Zoe hatches a plan for her grieving father. She returns home to create a silent film with music. As he heals, Danilo will find the courage to make a confession that has burdened him for decades. Together, father and daughter will learn to face the future.

“Smile as much as possible and do not be afraid of being who you are”, my father told me.
