Film Description:
"A girl is so carried away by her love of music that she forgets about her household chores. Her father tells her to finish the dishes. Instead of washing them, she turns them into musical instruments, and he finally recognizes her talent. Based on article 29 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, this film illustrates children's right to develop their talents and abilities to their fullest potential. A film without words."
-- National Film Board of Canada (source)
