À l’âge de 10 ans, Norman Malone, déjà un pianiste accompli, est victime d’une agression qui paralyse le côté droit de son corps. Refusant d’être découragé, il commence une quête qui durera toute sa vie pour se tailler une place comme pianiste, maîtrisant les pièces les plus difficiles à jouer de la main gauche. Ce n’est pas avant l’âge de 78 ans que Malone raconte son histoire au journal The Chicago Tribune, et révèle ainsi sa grande virtuosité et accepte des invitations à se produire sur scène. Près de 70 ans après cet événement tragique, Malone réalise enfin le rêve de sa vie.
