Based on the life of David Helfgott, this haunting film follows the pianist after suffering a mental breakdown and receiving electric shock therapy. After entering a piano competition and deciding to play Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 3, Helfgott becomes increasingly manic as he practices—eventually resulting in his admission to a psychiatric hospital.
