Luan, a very musical mouse, lives beneath the floor of a wonderful concert hall.
He dreams of taking centre stage with the orchestra – an unlikely dream,
given that mice are not allowed anywhere near the concert hall.
The arrival of a grand piano, and a guest soloist, makes Luan long even more
for his moment of fame – but how could his impossible dream ever come true?
Is luch an-cheolmhar é Luán. Is breá leis bheith ina chónaí faoin gCeoláras,
áit is féidir leis éisteacht leis an gceolfhoireann ag cleachtadh gach lá.
Ba bhreá leis bheith ina measc, ag casadh ceoil do na daoine uaisle,
ach níl cead ag luch teacht isteach sa halla go fiú.
Ach nuair a thagann ceoltóir cáiliúil chun mórphianó
a chasadh leis an gceolfhoireann,
cuirtear tús le heachtra a athróidh rudaí sa Cheoláras go deo!
