At 91, it’s hard for Joe Feingold to play his violin, so he donates the instrument, which has been with him almost his entire life. When twelve-year-old Brianna gets it, she decides she needs to meet the man who turned her life around. Music immediately connects the two, although they come from very different worlds. He is a Holocaust survivor, who grew up in a musical household. She is the daughter of immigrants, who grew up in a single-parent home in the Bronx. But for Joe and Brianna, music is the strongest bond they have to life itself.
