    • Synopsis
    • Chizuru (Anne) is a newly-hired high school teacher in the town of Umegaoka. Hoping to make use of her experience as a violinist, she joins a local amateur orchestra only to find out that it’s full of senior citizens who can hardly play a note. But Chizuru is too polite to tell a group which has welcomed her with open arms that she mistook the orchestra for another with a similar name. Ultimately, she winds up being the orchestra’s conductor. But soon the Umegaoka Philharmonic, her original target, gives her an opportunity to join them. Will she remain loyal to these well-meaning senior citizens or pursue her own personal musical ambition? Is the senior orchestra capable of ever reaching a performance level? Underscored by great classical masterpieces, Chizuru and an ensemble of Japan’s most lovable elderly bring audiences to a rousing finale.
