SYNOPSIS: First year college student Andrew would do anything to become a famous musician. His commitment is put to the ultimate test when the unrelenting and eccentric band professor Fletcher all but drives him to madness.  Fletcher's extreme teaching methods rattle Andrew's faith in drumming…and in himself. In the end, the struggle is only worthwhile if Andrew is really the one-in-a-million talent that Fletcher believes him to be.
