An incredible journey moving at the speed of sound.
I will now pluck your heartstrings...
Loosely based on Dickens' Oliver Twist, this is the story of a young musical prodigy's search for his parents. Both parents are successful musicians, who had a tryst 12 years ago, resulting in our little hero. Grandad put him up for adoption after telling mom he had died at birth. After running away from the orphanage, he discovers he is musically talented, and is taken in by an older man who is looking after a group of kids who earn money busking. Lady Luck smiles on him, and he wins a scholarship to a prestigious musical school, and is soon conducting the orchestra... at a concert which both mom and dad attend, unbeknownst to each other. Take a box of tissues.
