A young girl and her grandfather set out one morning to find the perfect branch for Grampa to carve. Grampa says he's going to make a flute, but the girl is doubtful. She has been to a concert in the city, and she has seen what a flute looks like. How can her grandfather make one out of a tree branch? But Grampa knows what he is doing and, after finding the right branch, they return home, where he whittles away until the branch is no longer a branch, but a wonderful flute. Set in rural Nova Scotia in one of Canada's oldest black communities, Music from the Sky captures the very special relationship between a girl and her grandfather.
