A young girl longs to play the violin in this lyrical story that shows it’s never too late to pursue your dream. More than anything, Elva wants a violin—but her parents say no. So she pretends. When she should be brushing her teeth, Elva rehearses for recitals. When she should be learning subtraction or going to sleep, she imagines playing all the music in the world. The years pass, but Elva never forgets her childhood wish, and so one day she takes a deep breath and follows her heart . . .

As a child, Elva asks for a violin so that she can make beautiful music but many years pass before her dream can come true.
