How far can music penetrate to ease human beings' wounded souls? Granada. Palestine. Barcelona. A Pediatric's Oncology Department. The Palestinian conflict. Women who have lost their freedom. And the notes from Schumann, Händel or Bach presented by classical music group Gamati Ensemble, to soothe the pain for those fleeting moments.

Wie weit kann Musik zum Menschen durchdringen, um seine Seelenschmerzen zu lindern? Granada. Palästina. Bercelona. Eine Abteilung für pädiatrische Onkologie. Der palästinensische Konflikt. Frauen, die ihre Freiheit verloren haben. Und die Noten von Schumann, Händel oder Bach, gespielt von der Musikergruppe Gamati Ensemble, um den Schmerz für jene flüchtigen Momente zu mindern.

Director: Amparo Mendo
