Having worked as a piano tuner in London all his life, Desmond is now 65 and almost at retirement. He begins a journey to a school in Zanskar, a remote little mountain village in the Himalayas to deliver a piano. Those around him can’t understand why he won’t just take it easy cashing his pension checks, but unperturbed, Desmond treks on, taking 20 some year-old Anna and Harold as helpers and companions. Despite the perilously steep mountainsides they must travel while carrying a piano, there is no shortage of smiles as they care and show consideration for one another. Here is a magical journey of a person who wants to share what he loves the most with others, and his beautiful companions who want to take part in that goodwill despite hardships. (Billy CHOI)
