This powerful drama based on Virginia Hamilton’s 1971 novel follows Junior, a musical prodigy stifled by his overprotective mother and eccentric piano teacher. He struggles to overcome the many challenges he faces, but the support of his oddball friends — and his imagination — help him through the tough times.
