Synopsis: Franco-American concert pianist George Lepauw embarks on a journey through Germany's central regions of Thuringia and Saxony in hopes of better understanding the man behind the name “Bach”, before making a recording of the famous composer’s “Well-Tempered Clavier”. This masterwork, which Bach first imagined in a prison cell in Weimar three hundred years ago, is the central focus of this adventure, and this adventure allows George to finally feel ready to record this five-hour epic, and through this experience, to find his own humanity.
