The story of a Man, a Mountain, and a Piano.

Facing future in retirement, a 65-year old piano tuner, Desmond O’Keeffe, decides instead to take on the most challenging delivery of

his career: transporting a 100-year old Broadwood & Sons piano from London to a primary school in a faraway Buddhist village, some 14,000 feet above sea level, deep in the Indian Himalayas. The expedition will take him through a world on a brink of change, filled with equal measure serenity and hardship. What may end up being the highest piano delivery in history, may also become the ultimate gesture of music’s universal power: bridging cultures, inspiring strength and bringing joy.

“Hits sweet notes... A fascinating musical odyssey.”

—Steven Farber, “The Hollywood Reporter”

“Delightfully, disarmingly surreal.”


“This film unites a set of lovely characters so individual and multi-faceted, even a seasoned Hollywood screenwriter would have a hard time coming up with them. It takes us on a quest that seems to be crazy and anachronistic but is actually full of purpose and symbolic power. Watching this film helps to restore the belief in a better world.”

—Joachim Hellinger, Banff Mountain Film Festival 2019 Jury
