More than 60% of Paraguayans live in poverty, and in the slums of Cateura, young people have fewer chances than most. Enter Favio Chavez, a musician and teacher who sees boundless opportunity where others see garbage.
Working hand-in-hand with local garbage pickers, children and parents, the orchestra is soon catapulted into the global spotlight. But when a natural disaster strikes their country, Favio must find a way to keep the orchestra intact and maintain a source of hope for their town.
A testament to the transformative power of music and the resilience of the human spirit.
