Academy Award Nominated director Scott Hicks creates a multilayered film about iconic composer Philip Glass.

Filming Glass over a two year period, Hicks explores his creative influences: his family and friends; his professional relationships with others including Woody Allen and Martin Scorsese.

Music aficionados will be enticed by this powerful film rich with Glassís own compositions which spellbind throughout.
