In a small street in Brussels there is an unusual concentration of piano players. To one side, the house of Martha Argerich, and to the other, the house of the Tiempo-Lechners. At just 14, Natasha Binder is the last great promise in a dynasty of genius pianists. The weight of family tradition is a heavy burden. Natasha looks for answers in the diaries of her mother Karin Lechner -who was also a child prodigy, in family videos, and through her next-door neighbours to resolve an existential question: what does it mean to be a pianist?
