Original Language

"Quando è un bambino a raccontare una favola agli adulti" Simon, un bambino di cinque anni, si innamora del pianoforte suonato dal nonno, che suona magnificamente senza nemmeno leggere alcun foglio. Ma quando il nonno scompare, il bambino non può fare altro che fissare il pianoforte, troppo alto e troppo grande per lui e ... 'suonare' l'aria con le mani. I suoi genitori non sanno come spiegare dove sia suo nonno è andato ma intanto il bambino intravede una stella splendente nel cielo. questo nonostante l'età e la differenza di età. "The Flying Hands" è la storia di un bambino nato dal fascino che diventa arte crescendo.
