The film is a journey on the wings of La Paloma, the most frequently played song in the world (La Paloma is Spanish for dove). Two thousand versions are known. Some say there are infinitely more. In Zanzibar it is played at the end of a wedding, in Romania it is performed at the end of a funeral. In Mexico it was the favorite song of the tragic Emperor Maximilian. Legend has it that, as a last wish, he requested La Paloma to be played before he was executed. In Auschwitz, Coco Schumann, the German master of swing, was forced to perform the song at the ramp to the gas chambers. All these and many more moving stories are told in the film, which was shot on three continents.
