Brief Synopsis

Walter and his precocious 12-year-old son Henry are street musicians who live in a dilapidated trailer home in Brooklyn while working the streets of Manhattan. Smart, charming and musically gifted, Henry is having a ball leading the busker's life. When Walter suffers a nervous breakdown during one o

While Walter languishes in the sanitarium, Elizabeth and Charlie take Henry in. Henry now has to lead the life of a "normal" 12-year-old -- which means a real home, attending school and the company of other kids as well as living with his crotchety old grandfather. It's not something he's used to at all and he doesn't take to it easily, but his love for music and a bond with his school's music teacher, Pete, help him get through. In time, music helps bring the family together. Charlie softens and grows closer to Henry; Henry plays piano for his father at the hospital and three generations are united. When the sanitarium doctors feel that Walter is ready to begin living as an outpatient, Walter goes home to an uneasy life in Morristown with Charlie, Elizabeth and Henry. Little by little, a family that has been splintered begins to reassemble itself and attempts to heal the wounds that have been festering for years.
