But everyone in this orchestra is old…

From Asahi Shimbun:

A young woman, new in town, is excited to be joining a local amateur symphony orchestra, but she soon discovers that all its members are elderly.

She’s kept on her toes by a seemingly endless array of problems, but she nevertheless begins to appreciate how the power of music can bring people together.

This is a summary of “Oke Rojin!” (Golden orchestra), a Japanese film that is now showing at theaters nationwide. Actress Anne Watanabe plays the young woman.
