Oscar nominated filmmaker Scott Hicks (Shine) explores the appeal and intrigue of string instruments with a layered documentary that spans the globe from the modest homes of the musicians who make up the Australian String Quartet to the picturesque violin-crafting township of Cremona, Italy to Manhattan's Plaza Hotel - home to the Carpenter family, the self-anointed 'Kardashians of the stringed world'. Juxtaposing the skill of craftsmen and musicians with the growing interest in the collectability of instruments by the ultra rich, Hicks weaves an involving story of passion, ego and skill.
