In a house of worship, devotion takes many forms. Aiming to master the world’s largest instrument, five young organists compete in the prestigious Canadian International Organ Competition, culminating in a captivating finale at Montreal’s historic Notre-Dame Basilica. This high-stakes event, with over $100,000 in prize money, attracts top musicians from around the world. They each attempt to transcend their hallowed surroundings on a magnificent Casavant organ constructed from 7,000 pipes. Hang on to your pew as the film travels from Texas to China, observing the eccentric and exacting competitors who demonstrate incredible dexterity while pushing every limb to bend this immense instrument to their creative will. As the final chords reverberate through cathedral rafters, one champion will emerge.
