SYNOPSIS:

A young girl who is a deaf/mute saw a street violinist, who was also a deaf/mute, perform. She fell in love with the violin and saw hope in learning the violin herself, just like the old street artist. After a few years, she enters a music school and is preparing for a school music contest, but is bullied and laughed at by another contestant who is her classmate. This contestant tells her she's different and abnormal, she would be dreaming if she entered the contest. The young girl is very heart broken, and she goes to see the old street artist again. With the street artist's encouragement she stands courageously on stage in front of the judges and audience, and blows everyone away with the soul of her music.
