Synopsis by Sandra Brennan

This surrealistic film contains almost no dialogue even though it is a sound film. Instead of talk and subtitles, music is used to convey the action. The trouble begins when a young pianist finds that burglars have hidden stolen money in his piano. When his mother is mistaken for a gang member and arrested, the pianist grabs the loot and sets off across the snow-covered mountains; the gang follows, but eventually, they are arrested and justice prevails.
