Summary A story about the transformative power of music, which also highlights two vital issues of our times: poverty and waste pollution. The film follows the Recycled Orchestra of Cateura, an orchestra performing on instruments made out of recycled trash, led by music director Favio Chávez. As the group takes its inspiring spectacle of trash-into-music around the world, we follow the lives of a garbage picker, a music teacher, and a group of children from a Paraguayan slum in Asunción.
