Plot

Inspired by the troubled but ultimately triumphant life of classical pianist David Helfgott, this moving drama focuses on Helfgott's mental breakdown as a result of his smothering father and painful retreat into a private world while still in his early 20s and on the brink of a glittering international career. After a decade of total obscurity, Helfgott achieves both personal and professional fulfillment by finding peace on the very thing that drove him to the edge his music, as he also finds love and support from a remarkable woman.
