Description

When Martin’s family takes in Dovidl, a Polish-Jewish refugee and musical prodigy, the boys become fast friends. But at age 21, right before his first major violin performance, Dovidl disappears. It is not until decades later that Martin (Tim Roth) sets out to find Dovidl (Clive Owens) and begins a transcontinental search that will take him down a path of long-forgotten memories and lead to surprising revelations. Driven by beautiful music, this is a story about family, obligation, ambition, and friendship, as well as the inescapable trauma of being forced to leave home.
