    Acoustic pianos that were once at the heart of our community lives are being dumped.

    Thousands go to landfill every year.

    In this film we see how some get rescued and are put on the street for anyone to play.

    Street pianos become a magnet for a rich diversity of players and bring human connection into urban spaces.
