This ad in the local paper-placed by Edward, who has a terminal illness-catches the eye of Kelly, who wonders if this could be her way out of an abusive relationship.
A young boy runs away from home and finds a job which introduces him to a whole new world of classical music and he is determined to become a concert pianist. Years later, after his first piano recital, he realises he is just not good enough, but he has one fan and there are other ways to live out one's dream.
An evening at the opera isn't exactly Charles Bishop's idea of a great night out, so when his friend Julian invites him to a performance at the Royal Opera House he reluctantly agrees.
By the end of the evening, Charles ﬁnds himself enthralled by both the music and the star performer, the mezzo-soprano Daisy Cartwright.
