Based on Ann Patchett’s international best-seller of the same name. "Bel Canto" offers a love story set against a backdrop of immortal music and mortal danger, which sees Roxane Coss (Moore), a famous American soprano, travel to a military dictatorship in South America to give a private concert at the birthday party of rich Japanese industrialist Katsumi Hosokawa (Watanabe). Just as a handsome gathering convenes the house is taken over by guerrillas, led by General Benjamin (Bichir) demanding the release of their imprisoned comrades. A month long standoff ensues in which hostages and captors must overcome their differences and find their shared humanity in the face of impending disaster.
