A feature-length documentary film directed by BOBBI JO HART
Starring Marika Bournaki & David Aladashvilli
Possessing the talent of a prodigy can be both a blessing and a curse. At an age when most people are fumbling through adolescence, gifted young musician Marika Bournaki was already embarking on a prestigious career as a concert pianist. Director Bobbi Jo Hart follows Marika's coming of age over eight years, providing a rare and candid look inside the insular world of classical music. We witness Bournaki mature from child prodigy to vivacious adult before our eyes, watch her incredible musical talent evolve, and feel the bittersweet sacrifice one family makes over time to help her become a star.The film explores universal themes of dreams, passion, sacrifice, family, determination, love and the fragile alchemy of finding one's purpose in life.
