About the film:
The true story of how Shostakovich was asked by Soviet authorities to compose a symphony dedicated to the starving people of Leningrad. The concert, which took place at the city's Philharmonic Hall, was broadcast live via radio around the world in spite of German artillery bombardments, and became a heroic act of artistic defiance in the face of Nazi brutality.
