One day however he has a 'lucky' find; he stumbles across a beautiful, discarded violin. With this instrument, with his extraordinary dedication and with help from others he is able to escape a life of grinding poverty and find his way to the pinnacle of success and wealth. Everything within our universe is connected, although the connections are not always apparent to us. Here we have the story of how such connections can lead our lives on to the paths of our destiny. And of how heaven sends us sometimes the instruments that we need to realize all that may lie before us. The instruments and the connections are all around us. They shape our fate and our destiny.
