This Canadian cinematic masterpiece is loosely based upon the legendary master violin maker, Antonio Stradivari, and an actual instrument that he built. The story begins in 17th century Italy, unexpectedly finds its way into an Austrian orphanage, then the Prussian imperial court, before beginning a nomadic journey that eventually takes it across the globe.
