Based on the life of Australian pianist David Helfgott. As a young prodigy he is pushed to the edge by a domineering father. He becomes unglued by his fathers demands and as an adult wanders the Australian outback dysfunctional and forgotten. Will he find peace in the music that drove him mad? Geoffrey Rush won an Oscar for his moving portrayal as the adult Helfgott.
