Who among us hasn't been caught memorising musical notes by humming the song that Julie Andrews gets the von Trapp kids to sing all over town in their made-from-curtains matching outfits? Austria, 1938. Maria is a nun who leaves the abbey to become governess to the seven children of a retired military officer, Captain von Trapp, who treats his small army like, well, a small army. But Maria brings back joy to children's lives and wins their love through music.
