1803, Vienna At the opening of our film there exists two separate worlds in Europe - the world of freed slaves who settle across Europe, and the world of mainstream European society. Our drama consists in the collision of these two worlds that stand in direct opposition to each other. Both of these worlds rarely come into contact with each other except through the person of the gifted musician, George Bridgetower, and his high profile friend, Ludwig van Beethoven.
