A diverse group of exiled bohemians (an Argentine pianist, Romanian father and son violinists, a Venezuelan harpist, singers from Mali and Vietnam) are united by their experiences with political repression, and by a luminous spirit and boundless courage that led them to flee any number of horrendous situations throughout the world. Finding refuge in Paris, music becomes their economic lifeline, but as this film makes clear, it is also a shining metaphor for their will to survive.
