Song One

A Moment Can Change Everything


Song One
After her musician brother is injured and hospitalized in a coma following a car accident, a young woman returns home after a long estrangement and begins to use his notebook as a guide to how his life has evolved in her absence. She seeks out the musicians and artists her brother loved, in the course of her journey meeting his musical idol, whose success and fame belie a shy and private man. As a strong romantic connection develops between the two of them, the question becomes if love can bloom even under the most adverse circumstances.
