    Finnish playwright Paavo Westerberg makes his directorial debut with this tale of musical obsession. A celebrated violin player, Karin, has to end her stellar career after a car accident stops her fingers from working their magic. She starts teaching students who are twenty years younger than her, only to find herself falling in love with Antti, one of her students. They are not an easy match, both being passionate about the music and overly ambitious about their careers. The Violin Player is a romantic drama about giving up on your dreams and letting your ambitions lead you.
