    Everything is Music accompanies nine young musicians from different nations on their journey to Greece to the Samos Young Artists Festival.

    The documentary film, created in 2010 by Pauline Roenneberg, tells of passion for music, of the pressure that weighs on the young talents and of the energy that is created when people make music together. The film follows the musicians during their rehearsals, captures the moments before their performances, and describes the dynamics that are created when a group works toward a common goal.

    The members of the oboe quartet struggle tirelessly the day before their performance, for example, to find the right beginning for their piece, while the saxophonist Verena tries to convince her duet partner, the Russian pianist Dimitri, to practice "air piano" on the beach instead of in his dark room.

    As contrary as the different characters in the film are, they are connected all the more by what they love: music.
