As a young girl growing up in Vienna in the 1930s, Orly has an idyllic childhood filled with music. Her father plays the viola in the Philharmonic and her mother is a well-regarded opera singer. But in 1938, Orly’s peaceful life is shattered when the Germans arrive. Orly, her father, and her mother procure refugee visas for La Paz, high up in the Bolivian Andes. But even as the number of Jewish refugees in the small community grows, her family is haunted by the music that can no longer be their livelihood. While Orly and her father find their footing in the mountains, Orly’s mother grows more distant, harboring a secret that could put their family at risk again.
