The Sound of Music is a heartwarming story set in 1930’s Austria about a young woman named Maria who is failing miserably in her attempts to become a nun. When the widowed Navy Captain Georg von Trapp needs governess that can handle his seven mischievous children, Maria is given the job.
Although the children initially resent her, she soon wins them over with her kindness, understanding and sense of fun and brings much-needed joy to the Von Trapp family’s lives – even the Captain’s.
He and Maria find themselves falling in love even though he is engaged to a Baroness and Maria is still a postulate. Their personal conflicts are soon overshadowed by world events as Austria is about to fall under the control of Germany and the Captain may be drafted into the German Navy and find himself forced to fight against his own country.
