Flavia Antunes grew up in a favela. Her father was a casualty
of gang warfare; her mother, a cleaning lady, is all she has left.
That is, until she meets Mr. Lima, a wealthy old man in a wheelchair
who introduces her to her future: the piano. Music will take her far
from home, all the way to a prestigious Paris conservatory. Being
a foreign student is hard: low-paying jobs, prejudiced landlords,
competitive peers. But Paris also has its perks: love, friendship,
undreamt-of opportunities. Can Flavia find a way to balance the
demands of the heart and her demanding art?
