Alma is a mischievous girl who doesn’t want to play her violin. What’s the point of it? An improvised conversation thus begins with her parents, which leads them on a fabulous journey through time: from the first sounds made by cavemen to the music played at the Olympic Games in the days of the Ancient Greeks, from a six-year-old prodigy called Mozart travelling across Europe to computer-aided music, this captivating story will change her view of the world forever and make her aware that magic can spring from her violin at any moment.
