The Music Never Stopped


The Music Never Stopped
Twenty years ago, a strict dad forbade his son from going to a Grateful Dead concert. So the son ran away from home. Now he's back, but suffering from brain damage in which he can remember the distant past but not the recent past. Dad is determined to help him recover, and the only thing that seems to work is playing the music from back then that the son loved, but dad hated.
