A big-hearted drama saluting the power of redemption. Zoso (a brilliant Conor McCarron) is living rough on the streets of Dundee. He is determined to take charge of his future and maintain a loving relationship with a daughter who now lives with his ex and her new partner. Zoso’s busking skills reveal a stunning musical talent but the odds are not in his favour until music lecturer Grace (Lois Chimimba) hears him perform. The search for hope is told with gutsy humour, energy and soul.
