The Piano Diaries is a song cycle about the journey of a piano from England to South Africa and subsequently to Australia. The piano belongs to the songwriter Joanna Weinberg, who inherited it from her grandmother and brought the piano with her when she came to Sydney in 1997.
Not having had lessons since she was a teenager in South Africa, she took up lessons in Sydney and found herself flooded with memories released by the process . These memories became The Piano Diaries, an intimate musical diary from a childhood which , from the age of nine, played out during the infamous Apartheid regime.
The songs range from a terrible incident witnessed during piano practice to the genesis of the instrument itself in the death of the elephant who lost his tusks for the keys .
The stories told within the songs move from the singer’s early childhood lived under the piano of two orchestral musicians in London to the songs written in the early days of immigration when the piano was damaged on the journey to Sydney. Intimate, personal , heart wrenching and funny, the Piano Diaries offers insight into the impact of political damage on the life of a young person and also into the process of leaving that world behind for a better life.

The film's story unfolds within that great house. Upstairs lived Mountbatten together with his wife and daughter; downstairs lived their 500 Hindu, Muslim and Sikh servants.
