Paolo Buffagni is a former actor without any formal musical instruction, who falls in love with Opera at 30 in New York. He's looking for the recognition he couldn't get back home. Paolo Inferrera was troubled by his parent's divorce. He hit rock bottom and acknowledge addiction. He needs to choose between redemption and self-destruction.
