A true but forgotten story of sacrifice and an impossible dream. Stunning music and a gripping story of the blind boy who wanted to be seen. Humiliated by others, Nicholas Saunderson harbours a hidden genius and an unquenchable thirst for learning. But it's the 1600s: no Braille, nobody to help, no hope. Yet Nicholas has aspirations. This tale of courage, love and adversity is set against the contrasting earthiness of Yorkshire and the dreaming spires of Cambridge. Can Nicholas succeed in a world set against him?
