Desmond Gentle is a piano tuner in London. His 65th birthday is on the horizon when he commits to delivering a 100 year-old upright piano to a school in Zanskar 14,000 feet above sea level in the Indian Himalaya mountain range. Using yaks and ponies to move his load Desmond, if successful, will set all sorts of records! Compelling, breathtaking and absurd this documentary is peopled by charming characters. Whether or not it is a metaphor for Empire is for you to decide!
