Based on a true story, this National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere is the fascinating tale of two brothers. One a classical pianist, the other a jazz bass player. One a Christian, the other a Muslim. One living in freedom, the other in jail. Separated by bars, the brothers try to reconcile their differences through the language they know best: music. A beautiful journey through faith, family, melody and time.

  a jump-up-and-shout salute.
