A broken string, fractured echo chamber, rusting valves.


One brilliant conductor, three gifted composers, and 100 musicians meet for four days of rehearsals. They speak different languages. Their instruments are broken. An orchestra of professional and amateur musicians, young and old, prepare, against all odds, for a one-time-only concert for the Mekudeshet Festival in Jerusalem.


A poetic, engaging delve into the broken and the whole, presenting an eclectic array of Jerusalemites, and their determined attempt to create harmony out of a discordant city - even if it's just for one night.


Produced in association with Jerusalem Season of Culture.
