'It is the privilege of a lifetime,' said Carl Jung, 'to become who you truly are.'

This emotionally provocative film chronicles the steps and missteps of a young man who loves art, music, and poetry but who, due to familial and societal expectations, gives up his dreams to pursue 'success' as others see it.

Try as he might to walk the path laid out for him, he hearkens to his Muse, and the more he resists, the more he suffers. Bowing under the strain, he finally picks up his violin.
