When Mozart is seven years old, Prince Maximilian invites him to perform in Munich’s Nymphenburg Palace. Following the concert, Mozart slips outside and unexpectedly meets a girl living on the grounds. Together they explore the mysterious lakes, waterfalls, and pavillions of the palace gardens. During their stroll through the park, Mozart shares secrets about his life and music.
