This award-winning documentary follows the life of twelve-year-old Marika Bournaki as she and her father work towards her goal of becoming an internationally renowned classical pianist.

The child prodigy’s life both on and off stage is explored candidly with extended access revealing everything from tears, to adolescent rebellion and Bournaki searching for her own identity.

Shot in concert halls around the world with stunning piano performances, this film is as much an insight into a precocious talent as an exploration of the complexities of family life and growing up and the challenges one meets in the classical music industry.
