Two years in the lives of violin talent Noa Wildschut (14), her alto violin playing sister and their parents. About ambition, the mutual relationships in a unique family and the coming-of-age of two sensitive girls.

Noa Wildschut (14) is considered the greatest young violin talent in the Netherlands. She played solo in the Concertgebouw and on foreign stages several times. Noa's 18 months elder sister Avigal plays the alto violin, but also has other ambitions. Together with their parents, they make up a close-knit musical family. For this documentary, De Jong followed them for two years. She sheds light on the influence Noa’s exceptional talent has on the family relationships. At the same time, the film is about two adolescent girls, each trying to find their own path in life.
