SYNOPSIS

A family movie featuring cartoon characters and live action, made by the Oscar-winning Peter and the Wolves artists with the use of an innovative 3D technology, previously used in Avatar.
The plot of the film is divided into two parts. In the 1st part two children find an old piano, in which Chopin’s soul is enchanted. The instrument changes into a flying machine and takes the heroes on an adventurous voyage around Europe. In the 2nd part a London businesswoman Georgie, her two children and the piano player Lang Lang are drawn into the animated 3D world, where they set off on a mission to bring the flying machine back to Poland, the home country of Frédéric Chopin.
