In the context of peace negotiations between diplomats from Israel and Palestine in South Tyrol, a concert of a youth orchestra of young Palestinians and Israelis shall take place under massive security precautions. The young people do not want to give up the peace efforts, which have already worked in their microcosm.
By making music together they are finding, by and by, common ground – a first path to bridging hatred, intolerance and terror.
Does music have the strength, to build bridges between the young people of different religions and hated nationalities despite the many challenges and obstacles?
