In Cateura, Paraguay, in a slum build on a landfill, a community has come together to make classical musical instruments out of old oil barrels, meat cleavers, even forks. From trash they have made cellos, violins, violas, clarinets. And they play them beautifully.
If ever you doubted even for a second the power of dignity or the grace of every human being, everywhere, this trailer is for you.
I promise it will light a fire in you, will fill you with joy and hope and holiday spirit. It will help remind you how easy it is to take things for granted. It will, I bet, make you smile and maybe even shed a tear.
