In director Barbara Willis Sweete's film, philanthropist James Fleck's own passion takes flight, with a little help from some of Canada's most prominent artists, including cellist Shauna Rolston, Shakespearean actor Albert Schultz, and prima ballerina Karen Kain. Under their expert guidance, Fleck gets to experience the tremendous sense of exultation that comes from playing Bach or mastering the waltz. This film was produced for the 2009 Governor General's Performing Arts Award.
