This documentary short, directed by Sam Ball and produced by Abraham D. Sofaer, recounts the remarkable story of Private Stuart Canin, who was admitted to Julliard in 1944 but was sent off to fight the Nazis. Along with a rifle, he carried his violin on his back "because you never know." Bound for the Eastern front, Canin wound up in Potsdam, Germany, where he performed privately for Stalin, Churchill, and Truman to break the ice -- at the president's request-- of tense negotiations that continue to echo into our world today.
