What would the world be like without Beethoven? That’s the provocative question posed by this music documentary. To answer it, the film explores how Ludwig van Beethoven's innovations continue to have an impact far beyond the boundaries of classical music, 250 years after his birth. Sarah Willis, horn player with the Berlin Philharmonic, sets out on a journey in search of answers. She meets people from around the world – musicians, managers and and even politicians.
