It is a film about the Congo, about the people of Kinshasa and about music. In the fifteen years of its existence, the Orchestre Symphonique Kimbanguiste has survived two violent coups d'état and an ongoing war that has claimed the lives of several million people. For the 200 musicians, interpreting the music of Beethoven and Handel partly on self-made instruments, is self-confirmation, artistic expression and a religious service all in one.
