A single mother with little more than talent and the determination to make a difference, Roberta Guaspari (Streep) overcame the skepticism of everyone who didn't think she should be teaching violin to students in a tough inner-city neighborhood. But even after a decade of ever-growing popularity and countless success stories, Roberta and her students must rise to meet an even greater challenge: budget cuts aimed a shutting down her valuable program for good! Also starring Aidean Quinn (Practical Magic) and Grammy winner Gloria Estefan in a stellar cast, this extraordiany story will inspire anyone who's ever thought their dreams were too far out of reach!
