Beginning in 1763, the film follows the Mozart family&#39s exhausting life on the road, traveling by coach from one royal court to the next, where the nobility marvel at young Wolfgang&#39s prodigious talent. But accomplished singer, harpsichordist, violinist Nannerl, Wolfgang&#39s elder by five years, first held forth as the family&#39s infant prodigy. At the film begins, she is still performing, though overshadowed and sidelined as accompanist by Wolfgang&#39s growing fame. Her father bows to social strictures "for her own good," refusing to let her continue with the violin or compose, while privately conceding Nannerl&#39s talent to his wife. No longer a precocious tot, Nannerl chafes at the limitations imposed by her gender and frets about her prospects.
