This moving scene is an fragment from a magnificent Swedish movie that was nominated for Oscar in 2005 for the best foreign film - "As It Is In Heaven". It's a perfect example how music and singing are powerful art therapy activities. This film shows the redemptive power of singing, how music opens the hearts of the members of a choir, affecting their daily life - one releases her repressed sexuality, another takes an attitude against her abusive husband; many are opening to speak their minds as to resolve issues with others; but most of all, it opens some to the experience of true love.
Heartwarming story: A famous international conductor Daniel Daréus, retires and returns to his hometown, after suffering from a heart attack/breakdown. There he is asked to lead the church choir. He teaches the choir members to find their own voice tone, the musical basis, and to rediscover joy for music. He will have to struggle with many problems in the choir, like assaults, prejudices, jealousy, envy, church accusations... The music and the singing manage to touch them all, bring them closer to one another. Old grievances and resentments are brought to light and then they dissipate under the common love for singing.
