A contemporary adaptation of the biblical tale of Abraham, Sarah, and Hagar, set in the world of the Jerusalem Philharmonic Orchestra. Conductor Abraham, and his wife Sarah, the orchestra's harpist, cannot have children. Hagar, a beautiful, young horn player from East Jerusalem, offers to have a baby with Abraham for the couple. But the child grows estranged from Sarah. Through this ancient story, Harmonia presents a poignant metaphor to the struggle between the rival sibling religions that inhabit Jerusalem. Nominated for 4 Ophir (Israeli Academy) Awards, winner Best Cinematography and Best Jewish Heritage Film, Jerusalem International Film Festival.
