A talented Czech band that has toured the world for over 20 years, The Tap Tap was formed in the music class of Jedlicka’s Institute, a non-profit educational centre for children and adults living with disability. Band leader Šimon Ornest strives to help these musicians achieve well-deserved success and attention and use their inspiring performances to fight stigma and social bias. In Two Roads, we follow the travelling musicians in their rehearsals and daily lives as they prepare for a climactic concert and the debut of an ambitious new song. Along the way, they navigate personal relationships and experiences with dating. Director Radovan Síbrt creates a candid observational documentary around this energetic, witty and unapologetic group of bandmates and their eccentric leader. Ravi Srinivasan
