This small amount of light is controlled by a fascist dictator, Marcus Pressi; a master of propaganda and control by censorship. After discovering that 'someone in the sky hides the light away,' Rian, an illegal violin maker, leaves her home and family to try to set things right. With courage, she disguises herself as the enemy in an attempt to reveal freedom to those who don't even know it exists. Her violin playing expresses our capacity as humans to desire truth and the divine power of communication through music.
