Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
It is 1821 and a lonely child spends her days hiding in the Vienna Woods until she spies an old man, a music maker. The man is composing a revolutionary new work, but he fears it will be ridiculed and that people will think he's gone mad. The child sits for hours watching and listening as he revises and plays, and slowly she develops a deep understanding of both the music and the man. Together they give each other the courage to face their critics and dare to be different.
