The notes in an arpeggio can be played in ascending or descending order. Similarly, when a young boy taught piano by his loving father grows into his teens, he faces a crossroads as to whether his relationship with the instrument, and in turn, his dad, ascends or descends as well.

Selected to a dozen film and animation festivals and counting, Arpeggio has been presented all over the world, including Spain, Greece, England, Wales, and the United States. It also won the Best of Student Award at the 2017 Blue Plum Animation Festival.
