Petar loves music, and his violin keeps the whole village dancing. But when war breaks out, Petar, his mother and his brother have to leave the valley and flee across the border to safety, leaving their beloved father in the village with the other men. Petar is so sad that he can no longer play his music - until one day a song of peace, spring and new beginnings starts to form in his head.
