The film’s most joyous performer is the bagpiper Cristina Pato, known as “the Jimi Hendrix of Galicia,” who is such a powerhouse that she could probably upstage the Rolling Stones (in their prime).

It resonates as a portrait of artists trying to figure out their own paths toward making valuable contributions to the world.
