They all are between 12 and 17.
They all had a home..friends..childhood..music.
Until 4 am on February 24, 2022.
At that moment, everything crumbles in their lives.
Except of music.
The world-famous Kyiv children's choir "Shchedryk" is scattered around the world.
The only opportunity to be together again is to gather to perform on the greatest stage of the world, Carnegie Hall.
Music in war is rehearsed during air raid sirens, in the basement without electricity, illuminating the notes with a flashlight, after massive shelling.
Tutti is togetherness.
They come from all around the world to Warsaw to finally sing together.
Now they know exactly what it means to «be together».
Each of them already knows what it means to grow up in war.
Each of them knows what music sounds like against the backdrop of war.
Each of them already knows what it means to be "together" despite the war.

21 years old
Born in 2001 in Kyiv.
Since early childhood, she attended the Waldorf school "Sofia".
Since little, she loved to play around with a camera.
She is still a part of the Kyiv Youth Choir "Shchedryk". Since 2019, she has been a student of «television directing» at the Karpenko-Kary Kyiv National University of Theater, Cinema and Television.
The film "TUTTI.SHCHEDRYK" is her graduation work. A debut.
In this film, I aimed to convey on a profound level that a choir is not merely a group of abstract people, but rather a particular child who undergoes their own personal life journey. That Music is not just sound, it becomes a world where both happiness and pain coexist. And that war is a time in which we live, grow up, create, and learn.
