Cello is a film about how fate brings music back to life. The director Kira Jääskeläinen finds and abandoned cello from a waste container. The only trace of its origin is the a label that reads: J. Zimmermann, St. Petersburg. When the instrument turns out to be 100 years old, Jääskeläinen -who has played cello since childhood- decides to find out its history. From a container in Copenhagen the story takes us through wars and revolutions to European concert halls, throught the hands of musicians to generations of violinmakers. In the end both the cello and the director find their place in the orchestra and the music can begin.
The film is an international co-production.
