Synopsis
Identical twin brothers are separated at birth during the Great Depression. Their parents cannot afford to give them both a life beyond poverty, so one is adopted by loving family. Despite their very different upbringings, the boys' shared passion for music causes their lives to unknowingly intersect as they experience a powerful and mysterious connection often felt by twins. One of the boys becomes the most famous rock 'n' roll legend in the world, Drexel Hemsley, while the other, Ryan Wade, struggles to find balance between his love for music and trying to please his evangelist father and his devoted mother who have very different plans for his life in the ministry.
