Synopsis


'Music is medication.


The elixir of life.


It's for injecting into the blood stream to take away the pain … to promote euphoria … to adrenalise us and give us courage and fortitude.'


In an expensive London recording studio two songwriters, their lawyers and their psychotherapists go to battle over music.


"I'm not saying he's a sociopath.


I'm just saying you find a lot of damaged people are drawn to the music industry.


Lack of empathy, raging narcissism, grandiose egocentricity is expected of them."
