The cry of war comes soon from France, while a young boy destined for greatness simply cries in pain from a fateful strike to his head in Bonn, Germany. Ludwig van Beethoven will grow to become one of the most influential composers in a few short years, but in his early days, he was just a commoner trying to survive his days with an alcoholic father and a world that just hasn't discovered his greatness yet. In this age, he wasn't an influential composer: he was a young man simply named "Ludwig," which inspires hatred and fear from a certain nobleman, Franz Kreuzstein. Why does Franz have it out for all named "Ludwig," and can Beethoven survive this personal war he's deaf to?

While Beethoven is a lover of the craft of music making, he's not a fighter, but Franz might give him a battle when the war is over. Will Beethoven be able to hear the music he plays, or is he cursed to only imagine what joy he'll bring to the world for centuries to come?
