The film tells the story of the Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra, a world class orchestra established by the Arabian Gulf state to further its aims of investing in culture and education and developing cross-cultural understanding and bonds. It starts in the beautiful desert of Qatar, in a dramatic scene set to the Tannhauser Overture, by the German composer Richard Wagner.
