Based on the book by Russell Martin, Larry Weinstein's 2005 documentary focuses on the strange journey taken by a lock of Beethoven's hair. Soon after Beethoven's death, a boy cut a lock of the composer's iconic hair as a keepsake.

The tale of the composer's life and legacy unfolds against an aural backdrop of some of his greatest masterpieces.
