First String

In a story of love, science, and music, creative 14-year-old cellist Aleksandrya ‘Aleks’ Landis competes for the Gold Pin award and guest chair in a prestigious symphony. Facing obstacles from an oppressive maestro, more competent string players, and skeptical parents, Aleks joins a busker in a special duet, and has an innocent, romantic encounter with a classmate, Andreas. Complemented by a parallel group of young musicians and a series of amazing flashbacks from 1930 and 1709, what transpires on the day of Aleks’s big audition will long be etched in the minds of all involved. Featuring a brilliant performance by Domenica Scorsese, daughter of legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese!
