David Blum was an internationally renowned orchestra conductor and author. Diagnosed with cancer at the age of 52, he discovered that drawing images from his dreams helped him cope with his illness in a profoundly unexpected way. Blum gently leads the viewer into his drawings reflecting spiritual guides, including his beloved deceased dachshund; radiant landscapes; and the music of Mozart and Beethoven.
Shortly before his death, Blum felt compelled to share his inner journey, in the hope that his personal experience could help others realize their own inner gifts. In this moving documentary, Blum explains; “It’s an amazing fact that at a time of dire crisis, people often unexpectedly find themselves supported by a power that makes it possible for them to cope.” Cellist Yo-Yo Ma, a subject of his last book, Quintet, introduces the documentary.
