For Once In My Life

For Once In My Life is the story of an inspiring group of people and their dream to make music. This refreshingly candid film refuses to sugarcoat the music or the lives of the 28 challenged musicians and singers in the Spirit of the Goodwill Band, as they display their talent, humour and tenacity. The band's intense rehearsal regimen allows us to appreciate the unflagging dedication and Job-like patience of Javier Peña, their conductor. The musicians' families match his devotion, offering inspiring testaments to the power of unconditional love.
