When Chen's estranged wife reappears asking for a divorce and custody of their daughter, the musician girl decides she will live with whoever can provide her with a piano. Chen's struggle then begins. When efforts to borrow money and even steal a piano fail, Chen concocts a preposterous plan; he'll make a piano from scratch! He persuades a bunch of reluctant, but loyal misfit friends to help him forge the instrument in a derelict factory from a heap of scrap steel. Though crude in design and tune, the factory piano awaits its first and final performance from his little girl. This 2010 release is from China and directed by Zhang Meng.Return to previous page >>
