This remarkable documentary looks at Ingrid Fuzjko Hemming and life of tribulations; her separation from her Swedish father, her mother’s strict piano lessons, the segregation she endured as a Eurasian in Japan, the poverty she experienced as a piano student abroad and finally the devastating loss of her hearing. None of which deterred her from reaching for her dream. The film examines the life and music of a woman who never gives up on her dreams. Following Fuzjko Hemming from Paris to New York, Argentina, Berlin and Kyoto, we get up-close with her on her emotive world tour and in her private life in which she surrounds herself with her beloved cats.
