A drummer at a top-flight conservatory is taken under the wing of a relentlessly ambitious instructor.

Andrew Neyman, a talented young jazz drummer burned by his father's once-promising failed writing career, enrolls at a competitive music conservatory with a view towards achieving greatness in his craft.
