A soaking wet man seeks refuge in a restaurant. The staff have difficulty understanding him and he is clearly disturbed. The man's name is David Helfgott, and he is an outstanding concert pianist who was predicted a bright future. When he was little, he was called a child prodigy and he could play like no one else. But his domineering father traumatized him and it resulted in mental problems. The rest of his life was a struggle to rediscover his inner genius.
