are you flying that plane?

nathaniel ayers suffered a mental breakdown while attending the
julliard school, a performing arts conservatory in new york city.
he dropped out and began performing on the streets.

after meeting ayers on the street in los angeles, steve lopez began
writing a series of articles about his friendship with ayers.
the articles inspired a book. the book inspired a movie.

the soloist

the trailer for the film features a wonderful cello solo.
yo-yo ma — bach's "suite for cello solo no. 1"
