Summary, etc.:
Amos Bardi (the singer's alter ego) is born with the gift of a voice which, that promises to be of superb quality, but at the same time, with a serious problem regarding his eyes, making him nearly blind. His illness forces him through the ordeal of multiple surgeries. Soon he is separated from his family to enter an institute for the visually impaired to learn Braille. But it is there that he has a terrible accident, a blow to his face that causes him total blindness. Despite everything, Amos does not give up. Driven by great ambition and interests, his life will be one challenge after another until he manages to achieve his first great success on stage with Miserere. From there, he begins a life studded with victories but in which the silent pursuit of a daily mission continues, moment after moment, the mission of one who, to be like others, must work harder than others, in every gesture, at every step.
