Story


About "Gift":

In this extraordinary tale of love, tragedy, and friendship, a mysterious piano connects two children from opposite sides of the world, leading to a journey of a lifetime in pursuit of truth and the love of music.

Abigail Phillips is an American farm girl who grows up to become a world-renowned pianist. Behind her success there is a secret. When Abigail is ten years old, she stumbles upon a mysterious piano on her father's farm. As the mystery of the piano begins to unravel, its origin is far beyond what anyone could have ever imagined.

"Gift" is a heartwarming tale about friendship, tragedy and the love of music. Children may be born gifted, but the origins of these gifts are often a mystery. Are creative talents passed through our genes, or do early childhood experiences awaken them within us? "Gift" explores this mystery while showing us how precious and delicate life can be.
