This inspiring documentary focuses on four years in the life of Muhammad “Misha” Alsheikh, a talented teenage pianist from Ramallah, who is the son of a Palestinian father and a mother who came from Russia. It takes Muhammad 3 hours to get from his house to a piano lesson with his Jewish-Israeli teacher in Jerusalem. Despite his father’s will that he will become a doctor, Misha tries to fulfill his dream of becoming a professional pianist - and also stay happy.
