Itzhak Perlman fell in love with the sounds of the violin at the age of three and a half but contracted polio a few months later and was soon to learn that it would be impossible, with his handicap, to pursue a high-level career as a violinist. Not only has he succeeded in doing what the world thought quite impossible but he has done it on a level that few have matched. A true Christopher Nupen combination of portrait and performance films, this film focuses on the great violinist and international star Itzhak Perlman. It is a compelling look at the formative years of one of the most extraordinary musical careers of our time and the triumph of character, talent and tenacity over seemingly insurmountable odds: a must for every classical music fan. He has become a much admired international star, not only as a violinist but as a teacher, guide and friend to many young people over many years. He is also a much loved TV personality, an honoured guest at the White House and a very effective spokesman for the disabled. And while doing all of that, he and his wife Toby have built a large and loving family around them. To quote Christopher Nupen: "If ever there was a story of character and determination triumphing over serious adversity, and producing glorious results along the way, it is the story of Itzhak and Toby Perlman."
