Parish – a blind untrained piano virtuoso – moves to America, urged
by a fortuitous encounter that promises him the glory he seeks in the
City of New York. That is until a series of misfortunes, the least of
which is not his cripple, comes to boil, thrusting him into that
proverbial rock bottom, where he has come to loathe his life and worse,
the person responsible for the tragedy that is his life.
The question ,
however, remains, is it his sister, Sara, whose ravishing beauty and
resilient love may prove too great a burden for him to bear, or his
brother, Nathan, whose jealousy and hatred of him has been since their
beginning? Or worse yet, is it some other who was yet to be revealed?
Soon, unable to accept his woes in silence any longer, he goes to
confront his nemesis- a move that does not go unanswered with a response
that proves fatal, if not final. This sets the stage for the Second Act,
where Daniel now finds himself in an unfamiliar world, on a pilgrimage
into the deeper, darker, recesses of one of life’s greatest mysteries,
where he will finally find answers to the incessant questions that have
plagued most of his life, guided by the wisdom of one man- his hero and
one of history’s greatest piano virtuosos- Sir Ludwig Van Beethoven.
And this segues into the Final Act, where the strength of Sara’s love
for him will be pitted against her humanity and love for Nathan, while
the fate of Daniel’s dark genius and his faith in the government of
God will interwreathe into a provocative and explosive jostle between
the heart and the mind, and indeed between life and death!
