Synopsis
A musical biopic which profiles England's "first great composer" Henry Purcell who--amidst some of London's most tragic events: the great plague, the fire of London, and the freezing winter of 1684 when the Thames froze over--managed to crank out more than 1,000 compositions in 16 years, before dying at the age of 37.
