In 10th grade, I broke my arm, which prevented me from playing any instrument for almost two months. It was painful feeling my practice go to waste as my muscles became weaker and my friends performed without me.

When writing this script, I wanted to use this experience as the circumstance, but then I realized music does so much more for people. It connects audiences with their emotions and allows them to imagine whole new worlds. 

Selia goes on a journey of self discovery to learn music goes past your physical limitations.
