Plot synopsis
In 2015 Moscow hosted the XV P.I. Tchaikovsky Memorial International Music Festival. 36 pianists competed in the “Piano” category. Four of them are the subjects of this film: the French beginner Luca Debargue, the torch-bearer of the Russo-Lithuanian musical tradition Lukas Geniusas, the very young American George Lee, and Dmitriy Masleev – an unknown pianist from the remote Russian region of Buryatia. These young pianists all have different lives, different artistic paths, different styles, and one goal: to win the prestigious contest.
