In this documentary portrait, we explore the passionate spirit of Sophie-Carmen (Sonia) Eckhardt-Gramatté who defied all barriers to become one of the most intriguing and contemporary composers of the 20th century. In an unusual twist of fate, Sonia's epic artistic odyssey would eventually take her from the great European capitals of Paris, Berlin and Vienna all the way to Winnipeg, a raw new cultural outpost of western Canada in 1953. With dramatic sequences, interviews, and performances of Sonia's works complementing the impressive archival components, documentary maker Paula Kelly has created a sympathetic and revealing portrait of a unique love triangle.
