Living in Poltava, Ukraine, in 1941, three exceptionally talented children develop deep friendships that overcome their different religions, nationalities and social classes. The two Jewish children Larissa and Abrascha, are both virtuosos—one on the piano and the other on the violin. Hanna, a young German girl, is also extremely gifted. The three find they have even more in common than their great love of music. Together, their world is one of curiosity, joy and talent. But when the Nazis invade the Soviet Union, all of their families are in terrible danger. Suddenly, the children’s world is turned upside down and they are no longer allowed to be friends.
