The award-winning and musically enchanting drama retells the Biblical story of Abraham, Sarah and Hagar in modern-day Jerusalem. Hagar is a French horn player who is accepted into Jerusalem’s Philharmonic Orchestra, led by maestro Abraham and principal harpist Sarah. Each woman gives a son to Abraham, who grooms the boys to become virtuosos. As the family is pulled apart, the hope for reunification lies in the music they share.
