Burl's father abuses him so badly that he's forced to run away from home. Alone in the Canadian wilderness, he is sure he won't make it -- until he meets Nathaniel Orlando Gow, "the Maestro". In just one day, this eccentric musical genius changes Burl's life forever -- opening him up to a world he will fight to keep, even if it means telling the biggest lie of his life.
