A boy walking through the subway with his mom hears music and wants to stop to listen. The music soars and swoops, and the man playing the violin sways as his fingers move and his bow dances. The boy wants to listen and enjoy the music, but his mother pulls him along into the hustle and bustle of the station and their day. Later at home, the boy hears the same beautiful sounds coming from the radio and his mother realizes they should stop and enjoy the moment together.

Based on the true story of Grammy winning musician Joshua Bell playing a priceless Stradivarius in the subway in Washington D.C., The Man with the Violin sends and important reminder to not be so busy and caught up in the frantic pace of life that we forget to stop and enjoy the moment.
