A testament to the transformative power of music and the resilience of the human spirit, Landfill Harmonic follows the Recycled Orchestra of Cateura, a Paraguayan musical group that plays instruments made entirely out of garbage. When their story goes viral, the orchestra is suddenly catapulted into the global spotlight. Under the guidance of idealistic music director Favio Chavez, the band must learn to navigate a strange new world of arenas and sold-out concerts. However, when a natural disaster strikes their country, Favio must find a way to keep the orchestra intact and provide a source of hope for their town. In Spanish with English Subtitles.
