"Nobu fever" became a term in the world of classical music after 20 year-old Nobuyuki Tsujii from Japan won the 13th Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in June 2009. This film follows Nobu, who is blind from birth, through the three weeks of grueling practice, rehearsal and performance during the competition, and is an inspiration to all people who face disabilities, hurdles or obstacles in life.
