Inspired by the true story of the blind piano genius, Mieczylaw Kosz. As a child, Mietek (Mieczyslaw) loses his eyesight, and his mother places him in The Educational Center in Laski outside of Warsaw, a one-hundred-year-old school for the visually impaired. There he discovers music and finds that it is his way coping with the world.  Mietek develops into an excellent classical pianist, but when he discovers jazz, he has only one goal: to become the best jazz pianist in Poland. He becomes more and more successful, not only in Poland, but around the world. He wins the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival. Unexpectedly, a charismatic vocalist, Zuza, walks into his life, a meeting that will change his life forever.
