    "The story is set in the fictitious Waterfront Town. Vincent is an apprentice glass blower learning from his father in their glass shop. Alliz is a prodigious violinist striving to find her own unique voice on the instrument," the makers told BuzzFeed.

    "The film will comment on the effects of war on children and follow both characters through their formative years as life gets more complicated and inhibits their friendship," they said.
