When Fergal Flynn’s remarkable singing talent is discovered by world-famous opera star Alfredo Moretti, the young man leaves his native Belfast and sets out for Rome, to study under the famous singer.
It’s a far cry from working-class Belfast, but Fergal soon finds out that excaping from a troubled past is not just a matter of geography. The more he tries to hide his rough edges, the harder it becomes for him to unearth his true voice. Then, Sudden news from home means he must returns to face one of the biggest challenges of his life.
As Fergal begins to see his life in a new light, Alfredo faces his own drama as his buried past come back to haunt him. The result is an enchanting, funny and moving tale of coming to terms with your true self and of learning to recognise the signs when love comes to town.
