In Russia there are nearly 500'000 orphans waiting to find adoptive parents. Adoption isn't a popular option in Russia, so these children pin their hopes for a better future on the possibility of international adoption. That was until Christmas Day 2012, when President Putin signed a bill banning American and some European citizens from adopting Russian children. Katrina Morris from US is one of the prospective parents who was barred by this bill from completing the adoption process for Natasha, a five-year old girl with Down syndrome. Natasha is unlikely to ever be adopted, but Katrina goes on struggling for her.

A musical portrait of the young Valery Sokolov, the Russian violin prodigy "I had nothing of the child prodigy, I was nothing special. At the age of five, I was given a violin and told to play." It is in such terms that the very young Valery Sokolov, born in 1986 in Karkhov in the Ukraine, talks to Bruno Monsaingeon about his calling. Trained in his native town, he later perfects his technique at the Yehudi Menuhin School in London where Monsaingeon discovers him in 2003: "I had the feeling of complete instrumental ease, and above all, of a complete abandonment to the flow of the music he played. I told myself that it was essential to capture as soon as possible the fresh flow of Valeriy Sokolov's immense talent & To do so, Monsaingeon moves quickly, he records the young musician in concert in 2004, at the Saint-Pierre des Cuisines Auditorium in Toulouse where he is accompanied by pianist Svetlana Kosenko. From Beethoven to Prokofiev, from Ysaÿe to Bartók, from Saint-Saëns to Dvořák, Valeriy Sokolov expresses every facet of his budding art.
