The story follows the history of a violin, the "red violin" as it is known in musical circles, from its creation in Italy in the 1600s to the present day where it is on the auction block in Montreal. Through flash-forwards and flash-backs, we follow the violin’s complicated genealogy which takes us across three continents and through numerous historical events.
Canadian Connection: Filmed in Canada.
