description:
Now a major motion picture An intimate portrait of mental illness, of atrocious social neglect, and the struggle to resurrect a fallen prodigy. (Mark Bowden, author of Black Hawk Down)This is the true story of journalist Steve Lopez s discovery of Nathaniel Ayers, a former classical bass student at Julliard, playing his heart out on a two-string violin on Los Angeles Skid Row. Deeply affected by the beauty of Ayers s music, Lopez took it upon himself to change the prodigy s life only to find that their relationship has had a profound change on his own life.
