At the age of 30, Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla was unanimously selected as the musical director of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, succeeding big names that include Andris Nelsons and Simon Rattle. With her inquiring, demanding and patient concentration, the young Lithuanian conductor constantly redefines the role of a conductor, defying any tradition or convention. Her contagious enthusiasm, relentless energy, and remarkable ability to listen make her one of today’s shooting stars in the classical music world. This film is an extensive portrait following a year and a half in the life of an extraordinary conductor.
